Nevada County's Community Invited to Eighth Annual Weekend of Giving:
A Benefit for Hospitality House
For the eighth year, Mikail Graham presents three holiday concerts featuring top talent from all corners of Nevada County. Formerly known as A Night of Giving, this year Graham has morphed this unique event into three, hence the new title A Weekend Of Giving: A Benefit for Hospitality House. “After seven years of having this event in Nevada City, I felt it was time to change things up a bit and see how we could reach out to even more of the entire community,” Graham said.
Friday night’s happening will take place at a new venue, The Other House, off of Hughes Road in Grass Valley. It will cater to alternative music lovers, with bands such as TV Stones, Coal Beautiere, The Moore Brothers, Aaron Ross, and many others.
