As cited in Palin’s October 30th Facebook post:
And it will be thrilling to pay tribute to Rev. Billy Graham next week as he celebrates his 95th birthday! The entire Graham family has had such a positive influence on our nation and the world. God bless them!
From Asheville’s Citizens-Times:
ASHEVILLE — Former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin will attend next week’s birthday celebration for the Rev. Billy Graham, a Graham organization spokesman confirmed today.
Real estate mogul Donald Trump has apparently also said on social media that he will be attending, Graham spokesman Jeremy Blume said.
A number of prominent people have been invited to a Nov. 7 party to mark Graham’s 95th birthday.
Blume said there are a number of ties between Palin and the Graham family.
Alaska has been “an outpost” for relief aid headed to Russia provided by Samaritan’s Purse, the international charity run by Billy Graham’s oldest son, Franklin.
Franklin Graham has a hunting cabin in Alaska and visited Palin during trips there when she was governor, Blume said.
Palin’s Facebook page today has a photo from a Christmas mission trip to Haiti a few years ago the page says both Palin and Franklin Graham went on. More
