Earning title to the French Legion of Honor is no small feat. So, fittingly, it was no small soirée on Wednesday night that celebrated that remarkable accomplishment by Becca Cason Thrash.
More than two dozen FOBs (Friends of Becca) — individuals and couples — joined forces to host the grand evening in her honor at one of River Oaks' most spectacular homes, in a garden setting that could have been straight from — where else? — the South of France. Like a scene from a Hollywood movie, the glamorous and the powerful poured in to pay tribute to the woman whom France honored last month for her international philanthropy, her unprecedented fundraising for the Louvre and her years of championing Franco-American relations.
