Just a Paycheck Away

If your brushes with homelessness last only as long as it takes you to speed away from an intersection (post-mandatory awkward shoulder shrug), maybe it’s time to increase your awareness. During SleepOut 2008, see what it’s like to be homeless for the night (sorta) with a giant sleepover under the stars at Meyer Amphitheater (104 Datura Street, West Palm Beach). Bring a sleeping bag and settle in for movies and inspirational stories from formerly homeless folks. Donations run between $20 and $100, with funds benefiting the homeless. The sleepover begins at 7 p.m. Call 561-313-1857, or visit www.cityofwpb.com, or www.thelordsplace.org.
