Sleep at the 'G 2019 with Melbourne City Mission

Sleep At The 'G is back on Thursday 16 May 2019 at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) to raise funds for youth homelessness. The event has grown and developed every year and sees Melburnians donate generously for the homeless and physically show their support by coming out for a sleepover at the MCG. Scarves and PJs, plus board games and snacks will be a few necessary items as more than 1,800 Melburnians will want to pack in their sleepover bag, as they prepare for Sleep At The ’G 2019.

This is the seventh-year Melbourne’s holy grail of sport – the MCG – will host the city’s largest mass participation sleeper event dedicated to putting youth homelessness to bed.


Every dollar raised will be put toward upgrading and furnishing facilities at MCM’s crisis accommodation centres across the city, a step towards ensuring those who are at risk of homelessness will have the support they need.

Some of the great activity on the night includes:

✓ Sleepwear Fashion Show

✓ Prize Announcements: Golden Couch Winner, Sleep on the boundary lines winners, Event App- Scavenger Hunt,

✓ Mindfulness Meditation

✓ Hand Ball competition

✓ Hip Hop Yoga

✓ Facilitated panel discussion with young people with lived experience of homelessness and staff from Frontyard Youth Services

✓ DJ Fuzzy set

✓ DJ Unleashed set

What a great initiative! In a nutshell over 1,800 participants and volunteers will spend the night at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), raising over $1.2 million to support young people experiencing homelessness in Victoria on May 16.
