Top Ten Collin County Women

Sandra Fay is one of our favorite Collin County Columnist of The Dallas Morning News and she jumped on the chance to recognize these fabulous women leaders of Collin County - Congrats ladies!

Neiman Marcus Willow Bend will honor 10 Collin County women at an Aug. 20 luncheon benefiting the charities that nominated these community leaders for their contributions countywide.

Honorees are Jenny McCall, CITY House; Carolyn Speese, Collin County Children's Advocacy Center; Beth Webb, Plano ISD Foundation; Jean Newman, Arts of Collin County; Amy Davis, Frisco Family Services; Diane Chester, CASA of Collin County; Sherrie Varrichio, Plano Symphony Orchestra; Christina Andrea, Children's Medical Center Legacy; Rosanne Best, Boys and Girls Clubs of Collin County; and Julie Karnes, Chamberlain Performing Arts.

Marcus Wyss will be welcomed as the Willow Bend store's new general manager. Plano Mayor Phil Dyer will recognize each honoree, and public relations manager Chuck Steelman will present a runway show of fall's Top 10 fashion trends.

Guest speaker Candace Nelson of Sprinkles Cupcakes fame is said to be planning special surprise treats for everyone.

The honorees and a guest will be invited to a dinner party hosted by Wyss at Neiman's on the 19th, when Gittings president and CEO Barry Benton will unveil their portraits to be displayed in the store throughout the week.

The $150 tickets may be purchased from each of the 10 charities, which will benefit from proceeds. Call Steelman at 972-629-1706 for further information.

"Top Ten" will be an annual event in which each year's honorees will choose the 10 charities to be honored the following year.
