Annual Awards and Benefit Luncheon

Overview

 

The Philadelphia Martin Luther King, Jr. Association for Nonviolence, Inc., the first and only affiliate of the King Center in Atlanta commissioned by Mrs. Coretta Scott King hosts its Annual Awards and Benefit Luncheon January of each year in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. birthday.  Our Awards and Benefit Luncheon is a living representation of Dr. Martin Luther King’s Dream of a Beloved Community.  
Our Awards and Benefit Luncheon is a living representation of Dr. Martin Luther King’s Dream of a Beloved Community. It honors a virtual Who’s Who of Drum Majors – persons and organizations whose deeds are exemplary of the fostered by Dr. King.  The luncheon is a highly visible affair, which has been attended by over 2,000 people, and is the largest luncheon in honor of Dr. King in the country.  It receives national press coverage because of the ringing of the Liberty Bell at 12:00 noon which officially inaugurates the King Holiday.
Our luncheon has also showcased a who’s who of sponsors, who support the Dream of Dr. King’s Beloved Community.  Previous Corporate Host Sponsors have included, Brown’s Family Shoprite and Pepsi Bottling Company, GMAC Mortgage Corporation, a host sponsor for three consecutive years, Citizens Bank, a host and a co-host sponsor for five year and Verizon.  Other major sponsors have included Tasty Baking Company, Independence Blue Cross, Lockheed Martin, Itron, Fedex, UPS, PECO Energy, Wakefern and the William Penn Foundation, just to name a few. The  37th Annual Awards and Benefit Luncheon and 33rd Annual National Bell Ringing Ceremony will be held on January 21, 2018 and promises to be one filled with excitement, camaraderie and hope for the creation of a truly beloved community.  It is a major source of funding for the King Association and its youth development programs.
