The Greater Ocean City Chamber of Commerce is honored to partner with the Town of Ocean City and Ocean City Tourism to host the Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast: Dreams & Determination on Friday, January 12, 2024, to kick off MLK weekend.

The inspirational breakfast will feature keynote speaker Colonel Gregory D. Gadson and performance by the acclaimed Morgan State University Choir.

Col. Greg Gadson, a Chesapeake, Va. native, is a retired United States Army colonel who served for 26+ years. Col. Gadson’s service culminated as the Garrison Commander of Fort Belvoir, where he oversaw the daily operations. In May 2007, as commander of the 2nd Battalion, 32nd Field Artillery, Col. Gadson’s greatest challenge came in Iraq, where an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) attack cost him both legs above the knees and normal use of his right arm and hand. Gadson remained on active duty and continued to inspire many with his message of courage, perseverance, determination, and teamwork.

Gadson is an advocate for wounded warriors, veterans and those with disabilities and has testified before Congress. He is also an actor, entrepreneur, and motivational speaker. His keynote speech topic will be “Overcoming Adversity: Prevailing Through Challenges.”

The Morgan State University Choir has performed around the world to critical acclaim. Named “Best College Choir” in 2004 by Reader’s Digest magazine, the choir has performed with many symphony orchestras including the Philadelphia, Chicago, New York, National, and Baltimore Symphony Orchestras.

The Dreams & Determination Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast will be held Friday, January 12, 2024, at 8 am in the Roland E. Powell Convention Center Bayfront Ballroom.
