AHI Member’s Company to Cater Presidential Inaugural Luncheon

WASHINGTON, DC —Design Cuisine, a full-service catering company providing fine dining for political, corporate, and social events throughout the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area co-owned by American Hellenic Institute (AHI) Member Steve Veletsis, will cater the prestigious 2013 Presidential Inaugural Luncheon to be held at the U.S. Capitol on January 21, 2013.

“We are proud to share this exciting news with the community,” said AHI President Nick Larigakis. “We congratulate Steve and his team for the honor of being selected to cater this very special event.  Steve is a valued member of AHI and a strong supporter of AHI and its programs."

Design Cuisine was selected out of six DC-area catering companies.  As a result, Design Cuisine’s preparations for the luncheon have been featured on The Today Show and CBS This Morning and several other prominent media outlets.
