Andrew Gillum will give the keynote address at the January 20, 2020 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration Luncheon at the Peoria Civic Center. Doors open at 11 a.m., and the luncheon begins at Noon.
A champion for everyday people, Andrew Gillum inspired millions across Florida and the nation in 2018. He surged past four better-funded primary candidates to a history-making victory as the Florida Democratic Party’s first African-American nominee for governor.
During the luncheon, the city of Peoria will celebrate Peoria native and 15-year NBA veteran Shaun Livingston’s achievements with an honorary street sign, “Shaun Livingston Way.” The sign will be installed on a section of North Street, between Armstrong and Richmond Avenue, near Peoria High School.
Tickets are $50 per person and can be purchased at http://www.mlkluncheon.com or at Peoria City Hall, City Clerk’s Office, Room 401.
