CHARLOTTE, N.C., March 8, 2011 – Will Graham, grandson of Billy Graham and oldest son of Franklin Graham, will be the featured speaker following the Charlotte Bobcats game on March 11 at Time Warner Cable Arena. He will be joined by popular Christian musician Todd Agnew, and welcomed by Christian radio station 106.9 The Light, as part of the Bobcats’ 7th annual Faith and Family Night. The basketball game is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. After the game, Todd Agnew will perform, followed by a message from Graham.
This will be Graham’s second time participating in the Bobcats’ Faith and Family night event. He previously joined BarlowGirl for a similar event on February 20, 2009.“I think it’s great that the Bobcats make a point every year to invite in church groups and spend a night focusing on what’s most important in life,” said Graham. “I’m honored to once again be a part of this event, and can’t wait to cheer on the Bobcats in their game, and then – after the game – share how we can have hope in this crazy world.”
