On Monday, Jan. 21, more than 1,000 of the Pacific Northwest’s most connected citizens gathered once again at the Red Lion Hotel overlooking the Columbia River for The Skanner Foundation's 33rd Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Breakfast. View photo slideshow below.

King County Councilor Larry Gossett was the event's keynote speaker. The live video of his speech can be viewed here.

Thanks to the support of 21 regional sponsors, 29 students received scholarships in keeping with The Skanner’s long-standing mission of “challenging people to shape a better future now.”

We offer thanks and gratitude to our sponsors and to all who attended, and look forward to seeing you next year!
