The Skanner Foundation again invites the community to share breakfast and celebrate the life, work, and vision of civil rights icon the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. with its 37th annual breakfast celebration January 16, 2023 from 9:00 a.m. until 10:00 a.m.

After two years of celebrating virtually, the community can now come together in person at the Holiday Inn in Jantzen Beach (formerly the Red Lion Inn). For those unable to attend in-person, the event will also be livestreamed. The Skanner Foundation's Martin Luther King, Jr. Breakfast events generally host more than a thousand attendees, plus business and elected leaders often including the governor and both state and U.S. senators and representatives.

This year’s line-up is no less impressive. In addition to inspiring words from our elected officials, you'll hear from previous student scholarship winners, and enjoy local musical talent.

This year’s breakfast will also be an occasion to present The Skanner Foundation's Drum Major for Justice award.

Watch this space for an announcement of our featured speaker, and sign up for our newsletter as we deliver more details of our yearly reflection on Dr. King’s dream.
