COUNTRYSIDE, Ill., Jan. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cooper's Hawk Winery & Restaurants, a multi-unit winery, restaurant, and retail concept, has been selected to pour the bubbly for the First Lady's Toast at the Illinois State Society's Illinois Inaugural Gala at the Renaissance Washington, DC Hotel on Saturday, January 19, 2013.
The Illinois ball for President Barack Obama's inauguration remains one of Washington D.C.'s most coveted tickets as attendees are hoping that Obama will make a stop at his home state's party. Other potential attendees include Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood will be in attendance to accept the Outstanding Illinoisan Award.
This event marks the second time Cooper's Hawk pours for the First Lady Michelle Obama. Cooper's Hawk Winery & Restaurants toasted the First Lady at the same gala in 2009. As with the last event, Cooper's Hawk will be the only Illinois-based winery highlighted and will serve the only sparkling wine; their Cooper's Hawk Blanc de Blanc.
"We are so proud to be a part of this evening," said Cooper's Hawk Founder and CEO, Tim McEnery, who will be in attendance at the Gala. "It is an honor to return and be a part of this milestone in our country's history."
