YMCA breakfast to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. this morning

2 community leaders, an organization to receive Y's 'Legacy' awards

Community leaders will come together to celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. this morning at the 15th annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Fellowship Breakfast hosted by the Tri-Valley YMCA.

The breakfast is held on the Monday following the actual Martin Luther King Jr. birthday celebration so that those who are away on the holiday can join in the observance.

This year's program will include inspirational speakers and artistic expressions related to the theme, "Dare to be Great." The keynote speaker will be Napoleon Kaufman, pastor of The Well Christian Community Church in Livermore and a former running back for the Oakland Raiders.

As part of the annual event, the Tri-Valley YMCA will be honoring two community leaders and an organization with its Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Legacy Award. They are:

Dale Eldridge Kaye, chief executive of Innovation Tri-Valley Leadership Group and president and chief executive of the Livermore Chamber of Commerce;

Liz Buckley, a counselor at Valley Continuation High School in Dublin, and,

Toys for Tots, a program led by firefighters in the Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department and the Alameda County Fire Department.

The breakfast is held on the Monday following the actual Martin Luther King Jr. birthday celebration so that those who are away on the holiday can join in the observance.

The breakfast will be held from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, 7050 Johnson Drive, in Pleasanton. The cost is $40. Contact Kelly O'Lague Dulka at 263-4444 to register.

Proceeds from the breakfast will directly benefit youth leadership programs.
