Virtual Night of Giving is Tonight – DONATIONS TRIPLED
Tonight, Dec. 18, we invite you and your loved ones to join us from the comfort of your home to enjoy the 16th annual Night of Giving.
WHAT IS IT?
Night of Giving is a virtual musical benefit to raise awareness and support for local families and individuals experiencing homelessness. Stay home and snuggle up on the couch for musical performances, shelter updates and a special guest testimonial.
The event features dozens of local musicians as well as six-time Grammy nominated artist, John McCutcheon, an American folk music singer-songwriter who was closely connected to one of Hospitality House’s late founders, Utah Phillips.
Since its inception, Night of Giving has always been about helping people. This year, as in traditional years past, angel donors and local businesses have come forward for one night only to offer a triple match to the community.
During the event and following the event, Hospitality House staff will be on standby, ready and hopeful to facilitate donations over the phone at 530-615-0852 from 7 – 10 p.m. or online at hhshelter.org through midnight. Donations sent via mail on or before Dec. 18 with “Night of Giving” in the check memo will also be counted toward the match.
HOW DO I WATCH?
Viewing options include:
HOW LONG IS IT?
In the face of an ongoing pandemic (and associated challenges), the event has taken on a small, intimate format this year. The entire show is under 30 minutes; yet, over 30 musicians will perform to do something truly magical —something never before done in these last 16 years. Tune in to see!
Steve Baughman, Murray Campbell, Kelly Fleming, Lorraine Gervais, Che Greenwood, Sands Hall, Paul Kamm, Eleanore MacDonald, Maggie McKaig, Randy McKean, Brendan Phillips, Dan Scanlan, Annette Taborn, Bodie Wagner, Homer Wills, Luke Wilson, Nevada Union Concert Choir as directed by Rod Baggett, and lastly, John McCutcheon. All performers donate their time and talents to make Night of Giving possible.
DO I NEED A TICKET?
No. There is no cost to watch Night of Giving from home, but a suggested donation of $25 is encouraged to help Hospitality House during the pandemic and beyond. Donations received during the event will be tripled by angel donors. If $25 is given, as an example, the angel donors will give $75 in response, which in turn will provide fuel and nourishment to 100 people for a day. Triple matching is available up to $10,000 (which means the shelter could receive up to $30,000 by angel donors if enough people give today, bringing the total to $40,000!). Gifts of any size are deeply appreciated.
There are three ways to get the triple match:
1. All day long today, donations may be made online at hhshelter.org/donate and they will count automatically toward the match.
2. Community members may also call during the event to make a donation over the phone with a staff member. Live donation phone support is available tonight from 7 – 10 p.m. Just call 530-615-0852.
3. Mail in your donation to Hospitality House at 1262 Sutton Way, Grass Valley, CA 95945. Checks dated Dec. 18 or earlier with “Night of Giving” in the memo will be applied toward the triple match.
