The Eyes on Renton Breakfast will be held from 7:30 to 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 7, at the Renton Pavilion Events Center, 233 Burnett Ave S.

The event is a celebration of business, according to a Renton Chamber of Commerce press release.

“Renton has grown from 53,000 to 103,000 in just over 10 years. The Renton Chamber of Commerce believes this phenomenal growth has much to do with existing and new businesses that have planted their flag in our city,” read the release.

Representatives from various sectors — including manufacturing, hospitality, technology, health care, education — will share the who, what, when, where and why of their businesses.

Businesses that will be present include Boeing, Port of Seattle, First Financial Northwest Bank, Valley Medical Center, Renton Technical College, SECO Development, Evergreen Market and more.

Former football player Jordan Babineaux will emcee. Miss Washington Jessie Siren and Evergreen City Ballet will perform.
