Virtual Sleep In Your Car

Sleep In Your Car was held virtually by Fusion Mornington Peninsula during national homelessness week. Functioning Together organised the event initially as a live event and had to transition to a virtual event only a few weeks prior to the event.

Event Type

Not for profit fundraising event




  • Raise $25,000
  • Raise awareness of homelessness on the Mornington Peninsula
  • Source sufficient sponsorship to cover event costs
  • Transition the live event to a virtual event

Functioning Together planned and implemented the event arrangements, including sourcing and managing sponsors, budget management, development of sponsorship package, preparing marketing material, setting up the fundraising page using the GoFundraise platform, construction of billboards, coordination of presenters, organise technical support, and schedule preparation.

All goals were met and the virtual element of the event was so successful, it is planned to be incorporated into the live event in the future.

‘I cannot speak more highly of Paula and the Functioning Together team, always contributing an outstanding level of professionalism to our events.’
Jaclyn Jenkins, Fusion Mornington Peninsula
