Annual Martin Luther King Jr. fellowship breakfast in Pleasanton

 

The Pleasanton Community of Character Collaborative is set to hold the 20th annual Martin Luther King Jr. fellowship breakfast later this month.

The morning event, which includes a keynote address and handing out the Martin Luther King Jr. Legacy Awards, is scheduled for Jan. 27 from 7:30-9:30 a.m. at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, Pleasanton at The Club (7050 Johnson Drive).

King is etched into world history as one of the most influential American civil rights leaders. The Nobel Peace Prize recipient, who would have marked his 90th birthday on Jan. 15, was assassinated in Memphis on April 4, 1968.

The annual fellowship breakfast is among the ways the Pleasanton community commemorates King's contributions each winter. This year's full event agenda is pending.

The fellowship breakfast will come one week after the Martin Luther King Jr. Day holiday, which the nation will recognize this coming Monday.

Tickets to the Jan. 27 fellowship breakfast are $40 per person while supplies last. Register online by visiting www.pleasanton.org/events.
