The annual event, now in its 28th year, draws more than 2,000 people, including city, state and federal government leaders and military personnel. The program includes prayers for the country and state and for people who work in government.

Flick was named Pacific 10 conference player of the year after playing with the University of Washington in the 1981 Rose Bowl game, and he went on to play seven seasons with the Washington Redskins, the San Diego Chargers and other NFL teams. He is now president of Tom Flick Communications and Outlook Consulting Group, presenting seminars on leadership, teamwork and productivity for businesses.
The breakfast will be followed by a free one-hour forum of inspirational speakers including Jerry Coffee, who was a prisoner of war in Vietnam; his wife, Susan Page Coffee; Kelly Rosati of Hawaii Family Forum; and PacRim Bank President Austin Imamura.
