Event Information

5:00pm Friday, September 10, 2021 to 7:00am Saturday, September 11, 2021

Family Promise's #NightWithoutaBedGV

New Location!: Story Mill Park's Lalani and Davis Pavilions OR Anywhere you want (Virtual)! 

Family Promise of Gallatin Valley invites You on Friday September 10th, 2021 to spend a #NightWithoutaBedGV so other children won’t have to. Help us spread awareness of this crisis on Saturday, September 10, 2021 for Family Promise of Gallatin Valley's second Night Without a Bed sleepout. Here's how:

In addition to posting on social media, we ask you to challenge a friend or family member to complete #NightWithoutABedGV or make a donation to Family Promise of Gallatin Valley. You can ask 10 people to donate $10 to help you reach your goal of $100. Our goal of $25,000 raised will provide our guests with essential things, such as childcare, gas, transportation, emergency shelter, basic necessities, moving costs and much more. Challenge your community to help  local families break the cycle of homelessness and move into a stable home and healthy life!

This year, you and your group, family, friends, etc.., have the option of joining Family Promise at Story Mill Park's Lalani and Davis Pavilions for a cookout, an outdoor movie, and sleep under the stars in your tent.

Park event will start at 5:30-6:00 pm. 

The reality is, families experiencing homelessness don't sleep in cardboard boxes, they sleep in tents, cars, and a friend's living room floor. Give up your bed for a night to join us in our fight against family homelessness. 

Schedule of the Evening:

Between 5:30pm and 6:00pm arrive, check in at registration, and say hello
6:00pm to 6:30pm: set up your tent and get it comfy for the night
6:30pm to 7:30pm: a cook out dinner (burgers, hot dogs, veggie burgers and more)
