Jiffy Steamer Company’s ESTEAM Pink hand-held steamer — part of its Breast Cancer Awareness Line — was included in gift bags at the First Lady’s Luncheon, honoring First Lady Michelle Obama.
The First Lady’s Luncheon, held last Wednesday, was presented by the Congressional Club.
This club was introduced in 1908 and incorporated by an Act of Congress to provide a non-partisan setting for friendship among the wives of the House and Senate members.
Today, the purpose of the club remains fostering friendships in its activities, but membership has changed from wives to include spouses of members and former members of Congress, spouses of Supreme Court Justices and spouses of the members of the President’s Cabinet.
The early Congressional Club held a breakfast honoring the wife of the U.S. president in 1912. The “breakfast” has been held almost every year since then and has become known as the First Lady’s Luncheon.
At this year’s luncheon, about 1,800 guests were in attendance to honor Mrs. Obama at the Washington Hilton International Ball-room in Washington, D.C. The luncheon was called, “Illumination Celebration, Volunteers Lighting the Way.”
“Jiffy Steamer is proud to be part of this legendary event held in our nation’s capital,” said Clint Joiner of Jiffy Steamer Company. “We are honored to have our product selected by the Congressional Club’s committee. Our company and its employees are dedicated to manufacturing our products in the USA and work hard at preserving American-made products.”
