Organizers of the 2009 Woodbury Prayer Breakfast have announced that Dave Clutter, long-time local TV and radio personality, will be the master of ceremonies for this year's event.

Clutter is a 27-year veteran of radio/television broadcasting.

In his Twin Cities tenure, he's worked as a traffic reporter for KARE-11 TV and currently a member of the 98.5 KTIS Radio on-air staff. His career has taken him to North Dakota, Wisconsin and greater Minnesota.

He grew up in Fridley and now resides in Maple Grove. He's the father of five boys and has two daughters-in-law and a granddaughter.

"I am excited to be a part of this special event," Clutter said. "Prayer breakfasts are a terrific opportunity for communities to come together to share their faith and pray for their community and leaders. In 2008, they had over 700 eager attendees attend this ecumenical community event."

The 2009 Woodbury Prayer Breakfast is set for 7 a.m. on Tuesday, May 5, at the Prom Center in Oakdale, I-94 at Radio Drive/Inwood Avenue.

Speakers, dignitaries, elected officials and spiritual leaders will offer prayers, testimonies and readings.

Individual tickets are $18.50 and tables of nine are $166.50.

Business sponsorships are available starting at $400. Individual sponsorships start at $100. Both include various forms of sponsor recognition.

Mary Giuliani Stephens, chair of the Woodbury Prayer Breakfast Committee, shares the vision for this year's event.

"We are focusing on the transformation of our community through the power of prayer. As it says in the song 'God of this City,' we trust that 'greater things are yet to come' for our citizens and our city," she said.
