The Covenant House Sleep Out 2017 was a huge success! How huge? The organization raised enough money this year to surpass their $1 million goal! WOW! For the 4th year in a row, Mike Staff Productions was not only honored to be of the ‘sleepers’ but to help document this inspirational evening through photography & videography as part of our Heart to Serve initiative. One our professional DJs also served as emcee and proved audio & music for the candlelight vigil.
Videographer-Extraordinaire Rocky Shattuck of Mike Staff Productions slept in a box, in the cold for the second year in a row and raised over thirteen hundred dollars to donate to Covenant House Michigan. BRAVO! We couldn’t be more proud.
Thousands of kids spend each night on the unforgiving streets of our great cities. Countless others are staying with relatives or friends, dreading the day when there is no one else to take them in. And one night can make a difference. Every single dollar raised for this event will go directly to keeping the lights on and the doors open for all of the kids who need help.

“This program is unbelievable with what they do in the community and I found it to be my charitable home to give back. Just hearing the kids stories and what they go through on a night to night, day to day basis and Covenant House turns their lives around – is what keeps me coming me back. Sleeping out is tough. It’s not comfortable and it sheds a little light on what these kids go through while sleeping on the streets. It doesn’t truly compare but it’s glimpse into their world for one night.” – Rocky Shattuck
