Local family gets surprise at White House luncheon

(WXYZ) - President Barack Obama made a surprise appearance at a White House luncheon Tuesday attended by a West Bloomfield family.

Sarah and Jake Hirsh won a recipe contest as part of the First Lady's healthy lunchtime challenge.

They knew they-- and kids from all 50 states-- were having lunch with Michelle Obama, they didn't know the president would poke his head in and shake hands with every single kid.

Sarah tells 7 Action News as their flight was landing that it was an amazing experience. She said the Obamas were gracious hosts and, Jake, who can sometimes be a little rambunctious was on his best behavior.
