Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. breakfast set for Jan. 20
Dec. 4, 2013
Ticket sales are underway for the 33rd annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Breakfast on Monday, Jan. 20, at Anne Arundel Community College. This year’s theme is “The Role of Women in the Civil Rights Movement” and features Congresswoman Donna F. Edwards, D-4th, as the guest speaker.
Doors open at 7:30 a.m., and the program begins at 8 a.m. in the David S. Jenkins Gymnasium on the Arnold campus, 101 College Parkway. Participants are asked to donate a nonperishable food item as part of a food drive sponsored by breakfast co-sponsors, the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority and the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, for neighbors in need.
The event honors six community members who best represent the spirit of the late Dr. King and also works to reinforce Dr. King’s message to the youth of the community. Master of Ceremonies will be Midshipman Demond Brown, who attended Annapolis and Old Mill high schools and is a sophomore slot back on the U.S. Naval Academy’s football team.
Please reserve tickets or RSVP by Jan. 10, 2014. Tickets cost $35 each or $350 for a table for 10. Make checks payable to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Breakfast Committee and mail to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Breakfast Committee, c/o Erica Matthews, P.O. Box 1951, Annapolis, Md. 21404. Breakfast proceeds support scholarships and help maintain Maryland’s only memorial to Dr. King, which is located on AACC’s Arnold campus.
