A Night of Giving Celebrates Its 11th Year of Community Support for Hospitality House
On Saturday, December 17 Mikail Graham will present the 11th annual Night of Giving, an evening of top local talent gathered to benefit Hospitality House and celebrate its 11th-year anniversary. The celebration is especially appropriate this year, when the shelter is having to increase hours and staff in the cold weather to accommodate record numbers of people who are seeking help every day.
A Night of Giving will take place at the Miners Foundry, 325 Spring St., in Nevada City.
“As this past year has been quite challenging for most of us on many levels, including a spectacularly volatile political season, we decided to emphasize community unity at this year’s Night of Giving,” said Graham. “Much of our inspiration comes from a short poem I recorded with Utah Phillips about a year before his passing called ‘What We Need.’ In barely a minute Utah gave a heartfelt rundown of what every human being needs and deserves. Full of human kindness and good common sense, his list concludes that what we need most is to be able to count on each other, with each of us contributing to the common good as best we can.” All who attend the event will receive an elegant letterpress broadside edition of the poem, produced and donated by Full Circle Press.
Dinner at the Night of Giving, prepared by students and graduates of the Hospitality House Serves culinary job-skills training program, will be available for a small donation, and there will be a no-host bar.

A Benefit for Hospitality House
The fundraiser will feature dozens of local performers, including Beaucoup Chapeaux, Paul Kamm & Eleanore MacDonald, Barwick & Siegfried, SierraCapella, Kimberly Bass, Rod Baggett and the Nevada Union High School Choir, Yuba Rio Hot Club, The Heifer Belles, Saul & Elena Rayo, The Earles Of Newtown, Buck Star, The Rattlin' Bones, The Moore Brothers, a special local legendary surprise performer, and many other great local performing artists all donating their time to show solidarity with this most worthy cause. A full list of performers can be found below.
The evening will also feature remarks from people who have benefited from and supported Hospitality House since it opened its doors in 2005 to the neediest in our community.
The music begins at 4 p.m. and runs nonstop on two separate stages until 10 p.m. Food will be available for a small donation, and drinks will be served at a no-host bar.
“This is the largest fundraiser of the year for Hospitality House,” said co-founder Joanna Robinson. “We depend on the willingness of our community to contribute to our work in this season of gratitude and giving. We’ve never been disappointed!”
For over a entire decade Mikail Graham has presented an evening of top local talent to help spread the good news about all the many services Hospitality House offers to homeless residents of Nevada County. Musician/producer Graham is a third-generation native of Nevada City and a founding broadcaster of KVMR. He has been coordinating musical events since the early 1970s, a musician himself, and currently the house sound manager for The Center For The Arts.

*actual performance times will be posted in December
Thanks to matching funds from some very kind anonymous angels, those who make donations at the Night of Giving beyond just buying a ticket, will be able to 'triple their contributions' up to a total of $12,500.
So for example, if you give $100 it'll turn into $300. And even better there is no limit to the amount you can donate wether it be it $5 or $1000!
All proceeds from this event will go directly to benefit Hospitality House, the community shelter for local homeless people in Nevada County. This is a great family holiday event with music starting at 4 p.m. Saturday, and running nonstop on two stages until 10 p.m. or whenever we finish.
As mentioned earlier, a wholesome dinner prepared by Hospitality House Culinary chef Jeff Olson, will be available for a small donation from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. or until we run out. All proceeds will benefit Hospitality House.
Drinks of all sorts will be offered at the Miners Foundry no-host bar.
Please come and connect with others in the community who support good music and this important cause.
Hospitality House is a non-profit organization built on a coalition of faith groups, community organizations, volunteers and local businesspeople. Its mission is to provide a compassionate place of rest, sustenance, and dignity for those who are temporarily without homes. The community shelter began operating year-round in September 2011.
Many thanks to Kathy Hempel Dotson for yet another wonderful poster!
