Dallas’ finest young professionals know there’s no better way to get into the holiday spirit than by spreading the love through charity.

To kick off the festive season, those altruistic young men and women gathered at Tate’s for Echelon’s Ring the Bell sign-up party, where attendees were encouraged to participate in the Salvation Army’s annual Red Kettle campaign.

In addition to signing up for duty, guests — including Kirsten Williams, Alex Baker, Jimmy Watson, Paige Davis, Lauren Lapeyre, Lauren Morgan, Charles Roscopf and Drew McWay — munched on spinach and artichoke dip, hummus, bruschetta, and an assortment of sliders. Hey, volunteers have to eat too.

Echelon has been participating in the Red Kettle campaign since 2011. Look for Echelon members ringing the bell in West Village this holiday season as they continue their mission of upholding the Salvation Army’s motto of doing the most good.
