What a great event. I'm so happy we could be a part of it. And the award winners were so deserving. I left feeling so inspired by the work the YMCA does in our community and especially by the message from June Mirassou. Life is happening now. Don't miss it.

I attended the breakfast with a friend. At first, I didn't know what to expect. I was very impressed by the quality of the program. As a huge Warriors fan (who isn't these days?), I expected to enjoy Adonal Foyle. I didn't expect to leave feeling so inspired. The young singer was excellent, the awards winners were so deserving and the congressman's final words were thought provoking. The best part was meeting the ninja warrior. I am a fan. I will definitely be back next year (with Kleenex).

I have attended the Martin Luther King breakfast in the past and I think this was the best one ever. Your doing great work, YMCA, and the partnership with CityServe is appreciated. Thank you for honoring the Pleasanton Seed Project. We need more focus on diversity awareness and welcoming the stranger. Our schools need to be inclusive and help all students succeed. And thank you for honoring June Mirrasou. She is an inspirational lady and I will be praying for her.

I have attended this breakfast for several years now. This one was the best yet in being inspiring to serve to make our communities even better places to live. Thanks to Kelly and her staff for hosting this--no doubt it takes a lot of work to make it happen

It's great to see PUSD honored for their work in addressing diversity in Pleasaanton. Our city has many people of different backgrounds living here and it is good to know our school district values including everyone. Congratulations PUSD Seed Project.
