A Night of Giving — December 19, 2015
Community Invited to Ninth Annual Night of Giving:
A Benefit for Hospitality House
For the tenth consecutive year, Mikail Graham will present an evening of top local talent to benefit Hospitality House. A Night of Giving, a holiday party for the entire hometown community, will return to its home venue at the Miners Foundry in Nevada City on Saturday, December 19. The event runs from 4:00 to 10:00 on two stages at the Foundry.
The fundraiser will include more than 50 various local performers including Terry Riley, Beaucoup Chapeaux, Paul Kamm & Eleanore MacDonald, Mountain Laurel Duo, dance troupe the Movement Alliance, SierraCapella, Lasher Keen, Fast Rattler, Rod Baggett and the Nevada Union High School Choir, Yuba Rio Hot Club, The Heifer Belles, Lo Lo Gervais, The Rayos, a special unplugged performance by local favorites The Deadbeats, along with many other great local performing artists all donating their time and showing their solidarity for this most worthy cause. You can find a full list of performers 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. This year we will be offering audio & video streaming of the LIVE performances from both halls at the Miners Foundry, interviews with Hospitality House guests, performing artists, KVMR DJs, and others close to the shelter’s work at Utah’s Place.
The music begins at 4 p.m. and runs nonstop until 10 p.m. Food will be available for a small donation, and drinks will be served at a no-host bar.
Through matching funds, those who make donations at Night of Giving beyond just buying a ticket, will be able to double their contribution, thanks to generous anonymous friends of Hospitality House.
“This is the largest fundraiser of the year for Hospitality House,” said development director 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!”
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.
Suggested donation for advance tickets is $20. Children ages 12 and younger are free.
