ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Hundreds of people are expected to join the Rev. Billy Graham in North Carolina as he reaches a significant milestone.

The evangelist turns 95 on Thursday and a big party is planned to celebrate the occasion. Graham's son Franklin has said that as many as 700 people have been invited to the party in Asheville.

The Rev. Franklin Graham says among those invited are President Bill Clinton, former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and real estate mogul Donald Trump.

While the elder Graham will attend the party, he's not expected to give a speech. On his birthday, his ministry is scheduled to release a new video of Billy Graham from his home as part of a nationwide religious outreach called "My Hope."
