Annual MLK Breakfast in WPB

January 20 @ 8:00 am

$25.00 – $50.00

Join the iconic Martin Luther King Coordinating Committee of Palm Beach County (MLKCCPBC) at its 38th annual breakfast celebrating the life and lessons of the also-iconic (of course) Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Thirty-eighth annual event. That’s huge: it means the launch of the breakfast preceded the 1986 start date when Dr. King’s birthday became a national holiday. The event’s focus is on honoring the work of Dr. King nationally along with others, locally, who have made a difference in the community. That also includes the young: part of the event is the awarding of the winners of the Committee’s annual Essay and Oratorical contests, too. The event will be held at the Palm Beach County Convention Center in West Palm Beach; doors open at 7:30 a.m. and the event starts at 8 a.m. Tickets are $25 for students, $50 for adults and $450 for a table of 10.  The keynote speaker will be Yvette Miley, who is a Senior Vice President for MSNBC and NBC News. She is also originally from West Palm Beach and that fits the event focus: honoring those locals who have made a difference. As she has. That’s her, below.
