MLK Holiday Prayer Breakfast



Benefitting the McCrorey Family YMCA and Y Achievers Program


We commemorate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., social activist and winner of the 1964 Nobel Peace Prize, each year at the Annual MLK Holiday Prayer Breakfast established by the H.L. McCrorey Family YMCA.
We are pleased to annouce the 2014 Keynote Speaker is Hill Harper, Acclamined Actor and Positive Role Model.

Directly following the MLK Holiday Prayer Breakfast is our 2nd Annual MLK Teen Summit at the McCrorey Family YMCA from 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM. We hope that Teens from across the Charlotte region will join us for this discussion around social justice, higher education, entrepreneurship and civic engagement. This event is free and open to the community.

The partnership with the City of Charlotte MLK Holiday Planning Committee, which was established in 2012, has made the King holiday a collaborative celebration for the entire community. Click here for a list of the City's complete Martin Luther King Jr. special events.
We are grateful to our 2014 Presenting Sponsor: Food Lion for their continued support of this inspiring event. The generousity of all our 2014 Sponsors has made it possible to increase our efforts in making a difference our community.

Proceeds from this year's breakfast will provide life-transforming programs for children and teens at the McCrorey Family YMCA and provide teens the opportunity to participate in the Y Achievers program.
