Fundraiser for homeless a real sleeper

Hats off to about 40 brave souls who wanted to walk a mile — or, in this case, sleep a night — in the shoes of homeless teenagers.

On Thursday, Nov. 15, business and community leaders participated in Attention Homes’ inaugural Sleep Out for Homeless Youth event. The Sleep Out was geared toward raising awareness of homeless youth in our community and was part of Homeless and Runaway Youth Awareness Month.

Through the Sleep Out participants and their supporters, Attention Homes received more than 600 donations and raised almost $50,000 to support its Runaway & Homeless Youth program.

Participants who slept out under the stars were Joe Agne, Amanda Boyle, Kat Brand, Pat Bruns, Mary Estill Buchanan, Andrew Clurman, Larry Dennis, Tina Di Scipio, Steve Disbrow, Jon Dorn, Clay Evans, Jeff Foltz, Deb Gardner, Ann Goldman, Reeder Goldman, Sharone Goldman, Katie Green, Jim Hayes, Josie Heath, Kevin Kelley, Rusty McCoy, Jim McMaster, Gavin McMillan, Chris Nelson, Rachel Overton, Lee Penner, Shoshana Pollack, Ashley Quinn, Jim Rianoshek, Morgan Rogers McMillan, John Sheldon, Paul Smith, Mark Spiegel, Don Stensrud, Melissa Stratman, Rachael Stratman, Alice Swett, John Tayer, Will Toor and Ryan Van Duzer.

Boulder-based Zeal Optics Inc., originator of the GPS ski goggle, has signed Olympian and 11-time Winter X games participant Jussi Oksanen to its athletic team, joining fellow snowboarders Kimmy Fasani and Austen Sweetin. Oksanen will be sporting the new Zeal HD camera goggle this winter.
