It's a holiday she will never forget.
A Lexington woman went to a Christmas reception at the White House in Washington DC.
Denise White vowed that one day she would meet President Obama during his time in office.
How did it happen?
A friend of hers on the Democratic National Committee put her name on a list of potential guests for a White House holiday reception.
Denise White says, “So I got an invitation on e-mail, and at first I thought, this is a joke. And I called her and she said no, Denise, this is not a joke. It's real. So I got a hard copy invitation. And I flew to D.C. Monday. And just getting back today. I took my sister with me. She's from Massachusetts. Hope. And we went to the White House. It was one the the great things. So, Denise White at the White House.”
White calls the trip one of the best Christmas presents she has ever received.
