Date: January 19, 2013
Location: Syracuse University. Carier Dome
Time: 5:30m p.m.
Syracuse University's annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Dinner Celebration, a community-wide tradition lasting more than a quarter of a century, is one of the nation’s largest celebrations of Dr. King’s legacy on a university campus, including a sit-down dinner for more than 2,000 people on the floor of the Carrier Dome, followed by a festive program featuring our keynote speaker. During the celebration, we bestow the annual Unsung Heroes Awards on members of the greater Syracuse community who exemplify the spirit, life, and teachings of Martin Luther King Jr., but who are not widely recognized for their efforts.
The 2013 Martin Luther King Jr. Unsung Heroes Awards will be presented to Adena Rochelson, an eighth grader at Wellwood Middle School in Fayetteville (youth/teen); JoVan Collins of Syracuse (community adult); Brenda Muhammad, a graduate student at Syracuse University (SU/ESF student); and Engineers Without Borders at Syracuse University (student group).
The evening program, which will include the presentation of the 2013 Unsung Hero Awards and entertainment, begins at 5:30 p.m. and is free and open to the public. Tickets for the dinner, which precedes the program at 4 p.m., are $25 for the general public and $15 for students without meal plans. For ticket information, call Hendricks Chapel at 315-443-5044.
