The Society Diaries With Gary And Elizabeth Petersen Host Soirée Honoring Becca Cason Thrash

By Rob Giardinelli             Photography by Erin Wiese

THE SCENE: The River Oaks estate of Gary and Elizabeth Petersen was the setting for a memorable evening that celebrated one of Houston’s most venerable and beloved philanthropists. Over 250 of the city’s social and philanthropic elite were on hand to honor the iconic Becca Cason Thrash, who was the subject of the wildly popular November/December 2017 cover of The Society Diaries.

THE VIBE: Upon entering the foyer of the Gatsby-era home, partygoers were warmly greeted by hostess with the mostest, Becca Cason Thrash. The wide range VIP’s who attended sported their chicest cocktail attire, which was perfectly befitting of both the guest of honor and Houston’s most significant homes. The women wore a mix of luxe cocktail dresses and chic pantsuits with a Texas edge, while the men looked dapper in a mix of suits and velvet sport coats. Fashion maven Thrash herself donned Dolce Gabbana Alta Moda couture.

Mingling about the ground-floor of the Petersen home, as guests made their way through each of the color-themed rooms, they encountered more members of the who’s who of Houston society than the one preceding it. Café Annie catered the affair and exotic desserts were provided by 7. The cocktails flowed from both international brands and favorites like Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège and Chloe Wines, as well as Spec’s Liquor.

The evening was capped with Thrash ascending the foyer staircase with The Society Diaries’ Lance Avery Morgan to toast her cover, the success of the two-city European gala she chaired and most importantly, to share her gratitude for her husband John Thrash and the hundreds of friends on hand to honor a woman who has made her life’s purpose one that does so much for so many.
