The new Earth Day Texas young professionals group is off and running after a vibrant debut party at the Dallas Farmers Market.

Thanks to support from Trammell Crow, Shed 2 was filled with young Dallasites eager to make a difference for the planet. This is in advance of the big Earth Day Texas celebrations April 22-24 at Fair Park, which YP leader Laura Reeder had a hand in planning.

Current committee members and those interested in joining were greeted at the market with a reusable shopping bag and the chance to enter the raffle for sweet prizes. For each social media mention, another raffle ticket was earned for free.

Guests — including Jenna Owens from The Kidd Kraddick Show, Stephanie Campos, Molly Tuttle, OJ DeSouza, Cole Suttle, Martha Justice Moore, Laura Ailshire, Sydney Joseph, and Holland Burian — mingled throughout the large space, sampling food and drink from the market's acclaimed restaurants and browsing the shops.

Outside on the patio, The Gypsy Playboys upped the lively atmosphere with their contemporary bluegrass sound.

But the fun didn't stop there. An after-party at Eastwood's Bar psyched up attendees to raise their $10,000-per-committee-member goal. To become a member of the group, a $50 donation to Earth Day Texas is required. To join the committee, you must volunteer at Earth Day; attend meetings throughout the year; and raise those big bucks, which go directly back to Earth Day.
