Come along to a unique fundraiser where a man will part with this his lustrous beard in the name of breakfast for Brisbane's homeless. Local resident and event industry identity Craig Mathews, has volunteered to have his mighty beard shaved, to raise donations for the project, having experienced being homeless in his own past.

West End Community House (run by Community Plus) hold weekly breakfasts for those in boarding houses or living on the streets of Brisbane. These offer a hot meal for people who might not see a meal on each day, let alone one cooked lovingly by a group of dedicated volunteers.

There are over 4000 homeless people sleeping on the streets on Brisbane each night. This can range from 'sleeping rough' to those in crisis shelters and boarding houses. Homelessness is a huge issue for our city and the West End Community House breakfasts are helping to tackle the issue by making the community aware of the problem and helping those who are struggling to get fed and stay healthy.

The big even will be held at The Rumpus Room in West End, on Monday 14th September 2015.

The night is also home to the soulful and talented band Captain Dreamboat, who will be filling the night with their signature vibe. As it happens to be a Monday night, the traditional Rumpus Room hospitality prices will be in effect, and West Ends best kebabs are right next door.
