“I wanted to convey how pleased and yes, honored I was to be part of the California State Society Presidential Inaugural Luncheon & Fashion Show on January 20th…one cannot help but feel a sense of history just being in our nation’s capital during those days leading up to the Inauguration.” ~Larry Wayne Morbitt

“At almost every event I went to, there was someone who had attended the Luncheon/Fashion Show and were so congratulatory on how fabulous the event was…a Sacramento lobbyist who was at the table with Mayor Gavin Newson and former Mayor Willie Brown, who was at the Luncheon had to stop me at a party to tell me that it was one of the HIGHLIGHTS of all the events she attended during the Inaugural…” ~Nick Verreos, CSS Inaugural Luncheon & Fashion Show Master of Ceremonies
