DUBLIN Mayor Oisin Quinn and 100 business people will sleep rough to raise €500,000 for homeless charity Focus Ireland next month.
Each person must raise or donate €5,000 for Focus Ireland. Last year's event, the first, raised more than €370,000 when 55 people slept out, which helped nearly 400 families secure a home.
"I hope the business community gets behind this and signs up to take part this year," Mr Quinn said yesterday.
