The MLK Parade Gala is an annual event where the Parade Foundation honors those who best exemplify the spirit and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Each year we celebrate men and women who have made a positive impact on their communities through service.

We also recognize and award scholarships to students who have achieved academic excellence while also demonstrating a heart for community service, and finally, we take time to acknowledge our sponsors who support our mission, operations, and charitable initiatives.

This elegant affair combines entertainment, awards presentations, great food, and an opportunity to hear from our honorees about what they are doing and how Dr. King has inspired them.
