It’s time to pop the Champagne! After six months of querying more than 1,000 in-the-know social authorities, including journalists, philanthropists, not-for-profit fundraisers, social luminaries, event planners, and cultural and business leaders from coast to coast, The Salonniere announced its 2018 Salonniere 100, an annual list honoring America’s 100 best party hosts.
The 2018 Salonniere 100 spotlights honorees from 34 cities and 28 states in the United States and represents a diverse and brilliantly creative group of men and women who share one common trait: an exceptional ability to leverage the power of parties to enhance the lives of others.
Jason and Jordan Rose of Paradise Valley were among the 100 other notables like Cindy Crawford, Rande Gerber, Heidi Klum, Oprah Winfrey and Reese Witherspoon who made the list for their extravagant parties. Also honored in the Phoenix area were Bob and Renee Parsons. A special focus was placed on those who entertain with enthusiasm, creativity, passion, and flair.
“From prehistoric times to the era of the French salonnieres—the social influencers of their time—to today, parties have always played a pivotal role in human civilization,” said Carla McDonald, The Salonniere‘s founder and editor in chief. “The Salonniere 100 is our way of honoring those who are continuing the tradition of hosting parties with a purpose. Whether they’re welcoming guests to support causes, advance ideas, unite people, or simply bring joy to others, the Salonniere 100 honorees are America’s most gifted and influential cultural connectors.”
Jason Rose, a native of Phoenix is the co-founder of Rose+Moser+Allyn Public and Online Relations and co-founder of the Bentley Scottsdale Polo Championships: Horses & Horsepower and the Stella Artois Derby DayClub at Turf Paradise. Jordan Rose is the founder of Rose Law Group, the state’s largest female-owned law firm.
