Akouri Hosts Luncheon in Honor of US Representative Charles Boustany, Jr.


(ST. CLAIR SHORES, MI)...Former Washington, DC Advisor John Akouri hosted a luncheon in honor of US Representative Charles Boustany, Jr. (R-LA) this afternoon. The Congressman arrived to Detroit for a three-day visit that included stops in St. Clair Shores, Dearborn and Troy. In addition to Akouri, the luncheon was attended by many Detroit-area Lebanese American Business & Civic Leaders. The luncheon was held at The Barrister Gardens Event Centre whose owner, James LaHood-Sarkis was the 2006 Lebanese American Chamber of Commerce Businessman of the Year. Mr. LaHood-Sarkis surprised Congressman Boustany with the national delicacy of Lebanon, Kibbee Nayeh, specially prepared in honor of his visit. The Barrister Gardens was site of a 2002 visit by Congressman Ray LaHood (R-IL), who traveled to Michigan to speak at a fundraiser for Akouri during his campaign that year for the House of Representatives.
