DENVER ” Denver’s mayor and workers at about a dozen businesses are wearing pajamas to work Thursday to raise awareness about homelessness.

The city is holding what it calls “PJ Day,” a day to wear fuzzy slippers or pajamas to raise attention to homelessness.

Mayor John Hickenlooper is attending a pajama party later Thursday to raise money for Denver’s Road Home charity. The party includes a bedtime story read by the mayor himself.

Hickenlooper says the charity event will raise $500,000 for homelessness prevention.
