Hospitality House Development Director Joanna Robinson says the funds generated by a Night of Giving will allow them to pay down their debt for the new building and to continue with operations at Utah’s place. She says the building has made a tremendous difference in their programs.

Robinson says the national trend on homelessness is that about 2/3rds are men and a third women. Though Robinson says they are seeing a dramatic rise in the number of women who are homeless with children in the past couple of years.

A Night of Giving 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. And food from the hospitality house guests who are enrolled in the Culinary program. A Night of Giving is from 4 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 20 at the Miners Foundry 325 Spring St., Nevada City.
