Beverly Graham is coming to Rockhoppers

Beverly Graham has recorded seven full-length albums. Her music is haunting, thought provoking, and sometimes just plain fun. As the Founding Executive Director of the largest Outdoor Meal Provider program for the homeless and food insecure in Washington State , Beverly has used her music to feed the hungry, raise awareness, volunteers, and much-needed funds as an inspirational speaker and performer. OPERATION: Sack Lunch has served more than 1.5 million meals since 1989. Beverly is the 1997 Washington State recipient of the prestigious National American Institute of Public Service “Jefferson Award“ for her humanitarian work. In 1998 she was inducted as a “Giraffe” in The Giraffe Project, an international program that recognizes people around the world who “stick their necks out for the common good”. Beverly was honored as the “Woman of Distinction for 2001, received the 2002 “Mayors End Hunger Award”, and is a 2004 Thomas C. Wales Foundation Honoree. She has received several other community based awards and nominations for service, inspiration, and as a peacemaker. Beverly is an 2006 invitational graduate of the Seattle University ’s Executive Leadership Program and has composed the theme songs used by the Moyer Foundation and Boeing Employees Community Fund. Featured on the Hallmark Station, Beverly is a gifted storyteller and a dynamic performer with immense positive energy, insight and vision. Her work in the corporate community on service leadership, team building, and embracing diversity, is moving and stimulating. Her music, humor, and passion for all of life, linger with you long after her performance is finished. She has an enormous ability to embody being love in action. An article by Dan Fuller states; “standing less than five feet tall, she is a giant to thousands of people who have been touched by her talent and compassion”.

So join us Saturday as we welcome this incredible woman and good friend. The music starts at 7:00PM and goes till 9:00PM. There is a $5.00 cover charge.
