HOUSTON (KTRK) -- If you've ever attended a soiree thrown by Isabel David, Lucinda Loya, Becca Cason Thrash, Phoebe Tudor or Lynn Wyatt, chances are good that you walked away dazzled.
This year, these five Houstonians join the ranks of the country's top 100 party hosts and hostesses, as ranked by The Salonniere.
Over a seven-month period, editors of the society and entertaining website asked more than 1,000 influencers across the nation to nominate most gracious and highly skilled entertainers in their city. Those nominated the most often were reviewed by an independent group of social authorities for final inclusion in the list.
Cason Thrash, Tudor and Wyatt also appeared on the website's inaugural ranking last year. Cason Thrash, Loya and Tudor have also been honored as ABC13 Women of Distinction.
Other Texans who made this year's list include Bobbi Topfer, Eugene Sepulveda and Steven Tomlinson, all of Austin, and Cindy Rachofsky, Elisa and Stephen Summers, Gene Jones, Heather and Ray Washburne and Kimberly Schlegel Whitman, all of Dallas.
