Proceeds from the breakfast will benefit MVC's scholarship fund. Sponsorship opportunities are available through the Riverside Community College District Foundation Office at (951) 222-8627. Tickets for the breakfast are $25 and available through the MVC Admissions & Records office at (951) 571-6358.

"We are asking our the community to join Moreno Valley College in celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s legacy, and financially support the College scholarship fund in order to help deserving students," said Greg Sandoval, vice president of Student Services.

The theme of the breakfast is Beyond the Dream: Celebrating the Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King.

As part of the celebration, the two local unified school districts will hold an essay contest for high school students, while students on the MVC campus will participate in a speech contest.

"We asked both groups to describe what the next 50 years will reflect regarding Dr. King's vision for America," Sandoval said.
