Nationally Acclaimed Medical Missionary To Be Guest Speaker At King Breakfast

 



Ontario, CA (BlackNews.com) –The 9th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Unity Breakfast Tribute will carry the tradition of music and inspiration in honor of Dr. King on Monday, January 18th, 2010, with special guest speaker Rev. Ronald V. Myers, Sr., M.D., chairman of the National Juneteenth Observance Foundation (NJOF) and noted medical missionary, musician, and activist. Dr. Myers is featured as well as the Senior Pastors and Choirs of Mt. Zion Baptist Church of Ontario and Mt. Sinai C.O.G.I.C. in Pomona, encouraging attendees to reflect on Dr. King's legacy as we begin a new decade in an era of change. The event will be held from 8:30AM-10:30AM at the Ontario Airport Doubletree Hotel, with doors opening at 8:00AM.

Dr. Myers' work as a medical missionary has garnered national media coverage, in ABC's “Good Morning America”, People Magazine and New York Times, and joins the breakfast tribute while on the trail of leading the nation into acknowledging “Juneteenth”, most recently achieving Wisconsin as the 32nd state, this past December, to recognize Juneteenth as a paid holiday. The breakfast tribute has been a staple event in the Inland Empire, creating a forum to embrace diversity and American heritage, amongst dignitaries, community leaders, and families looking to celebrate the holiday.

“This event recreates the spirit and collective environment that nurtured Dr. King's efforts and fostered a movement that changed the country,” says Founder of Juneteenth America, Inc., John H. Thompson, Sr. “And it is in this momentum, that we should continue to recognize efforts and events affecting the makeup of our American heritage.”

Participating sponsors and community partners include Verizon, Ontario Volvo, Ontario Volkswagen, Ontario Airport Doubletree Hotel, E-Biz Marketing and Inland Empire Community Calendar. Tickets are $30 for General Admission, with Table, Advertisement and Sponsorship opportunities still available. For more information or to purchase tickets directly, visit www.juneteenthamerica.us, call (909) 621-9707 or e-mail jai@juneteenthamerica.us.

Juneteenth America Incorporated (JAI) is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, that has produced community events and programs since 1995 in Southern California's Inland Empire, to educate the public about the significance of “Juneteenth” or “June 19th, 1865” and promote the observance of the California Juneteenth National Freedom Day, signed into law in 2002.
