On July 31, San Rafael’s Ritter Center would like Marin residents to stay out of bed. As part of its first-ever Under the Stars: A Sleepout to End Homelessness in Marin event, the center is encouraging individuals, families and community teams to gather in living rooms; on floors, sofas, decks, porches, driveways and backyards with the intention of spending the night in any place other than a bed. Groups and individuals will receive a fundraising page and tips on how to gather support. 

“While homelessness is a serious issue, we hope that this new annual event for Ritter Center will create conversation, raise essential funds, and be inspiring for all ages,” says Mark Shotwell, Ritter Center’s executive director.
