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 on Saturday, December 19. The event runs from 4:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. on two stages at the Foundry.
The evening will also feature remarks from people who have benefited from and support Hospitality House since it opened its doors in 2005 to the neediest in our community. Of note, this year’s event will be streamed online, complete with live performances and 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 4:00 p.m. and runs nonstop until 10:00 p.m. (or when we finish!). 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 buying a ticket will be able to double their contribution, thanks to generous anonymous friends of Hospitality House. One will match all non-corporate donations up to $200 made at the event, capping at $10,000. The other will match donations of any amount, also capping at $10,000.
“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!”
Suggested donation for advance tickets is $20. Children ages 12 and younger are free.
