No less than Dallin Oaks sez it happens frequently!
"'These types of celebrations, which we have seen since the early years of the Church, give us inspiring insight into the lives of those chosen by God to serve as His prophets,' said President Dallin H. Oaks of the First Presidency. 'I have personally attended many such events for past prophets, and each time I leave with a sense of wonder and gratitude for the way in which our Father in Heaven shapes, trains and teaches His prophets. It will be a privilege for all of us to participate and to celebrate President Nelson’s 95th birthday.'"https://www.mormonnewsroom.org/article/president-nelson-95th-birthday-celebration-invitation
