Prayer Breakfast

Dear Friends,

On Saturday, January 19, 2019, at 8 a.m., citizens of Asheville and Buncombe County will celebrate our community’s 38th annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Prayer Breakfast at the Crowne Plaza Resort on Resort Drive in West Asheville. We thank you for the invaluable support you and others in our community have given to the Martin Luther King, Jr. Association in past years, and we cordially invite you to join us once again as we celebrate our nation’s progress and forcefully face the obstacles to Dr. King’s dream that still confront us. This year our keynote speaker will be civil rights pioneer Ernest G. Green, one of the world-renowned Little Rock Nine, who integrated Central High School in Little Rock, Ark. in 1957.

We invite you to support our ongoing efforts to achieve Dr. King’s ideals by advertising in our 2019 Souvenir Journal, which will be distributed to more than 1,000 citizens gathered at the Crowne Plaza Resort on January 19. We must receive your advertising artwork no later than Friday, Dec. 14, 2018.

Tickets for the breakfast may be purchased for $25 each. Patron tickets are available for $35, with patron names included in the program journal. Tickets may be purchased online by clicking the button below.


Advertising prices along with copy and size specifications are on the enclosed order form. If you wish to reserve a patron table ($350.00) for your group, please include your request and ticket payment with your advertising order, or contact us at 828-281-1624 no later than Dec. 14.

Your tickets or advertising can be paid for by check or money order or by using the PayPal on our website.

We look forward to receiving your order by return mail. Thank you again for your support.
