The COPE Galway Business Leaders’ Sleep Out: a unique annual fundraising event in Galway
Since 2012, on the first Friday of December – Business Leaders from organisations around Galway and beyond have been coming together to brave the cold for 12 hours.
Since 2012, COPE Galway has been bringing business leaders together to experience a winter’s night on our streets and to raise funds for COPE Galway’s homeless services.
In a shared experience with other business leaders, staying out on the streets together so close to Christmas builds and deepens relationships. This night leaves a lasting impression.
