Who: The King Center What: Salute to Greatness Awards Dinner 2017 Where: Hyatt Regency Atlanta When: Saturday, January 14, 2017 Attire: Black Tie Optional
Every year, The King Center in Atlanta leads the nation-wide observance of the national holiday commemorating the birthday of my father, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. One of the marquee events of The King Center’s week-long, holiday experience is the annual “Salute to Greatness” Awards Gala. The “Salute to Greatness” Award, given at the gala, recognizes national and/or international individuals and corporations that exemplify excellence in leadership; pursue the universal quest for social justice and worldwide peace in the tradition of Martin Luther King, Jr.; and, have made notable strides toward improving the quality of life for all.
The King Center serves as the official living memorial to the life and legacy of my father. We offer various experiences that highlight Dr. King’s nonviolent philosophy and methodology and provide education and training on how to utilize them, which The King Center references as Nonviolence365TM (NV365TM). In an effort to meet this challenge, we developed resources and innovative initiatives that equip people from all over the world to address our globe’s most pressing challenges using NV365TM. We hope you will join in the celebration. Your support helps us to continue and expand our Nonviolence365TM initiatives.
