What: LCA Houston International Mother’s Day luncheon salute

Where: The Junior League of Houston

PC moment: As is tradition with the international focus of the event recognizing accomplished mothers, 11 women of varying backgrounds and varying heritage walked the runway to the applause of more than 200 guests. Making the presentation particularly adorable are the youngsters and some teens that accompany their moms.

Declared Showstopper of the afternoon event was Lexis Florist’s Sue Habib, who was accompanied by her daughter Miriam Habib and her three grandsons. In a nod to the honor Lexis Florist provided centerpieces of white roses.

KTRK Channel 13 had several representatives at the luncheon — honorees meteorologist Chita Craft with her two toddlers and news anchor Gina Gaston with her two sons; and weekend news anchor Tom Abraham. The latter joined Dr. Sippi Khurana in serving as emcee.

Taking bows along with Craft, Gaston and Habib were honored mothers BMW of West Houston GM Maria Moncada Alaoui, who walked the runway with her nephews; Bethany Buchanan; Dr. Namrata Sharma Goel; Stacey Lindseth; Nina Verma Magon; Niloufar Molavi; Malaika Mukoro; Anna Reger; and Kanchan Singh.
