151 WHEN DANCING IS YOUR SALVATION Photography Larry Sengbush What: The Salvation Army Echelon 30M Gala Where: The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas Who: Chairs Finley Ewing, Casey Gribble, and Tori and Ross Mulford; honored families Heather and Todd Furniss, with daughter Ashley Shaw and son John Callahan; and JoAnne and Tony Roosevelt, the grandson of former president Franklin Delano Roosevelt, with family members Laura Roosevelt, Emily and Tony Roosevelt, Liz and Seth Kelly, and Kim and David Roosevelt; Echelon presidents Lauren Toledo and Jimmy Watson; The Salvation Army's Barbara and Jon Rich; and partygoers including Ashley Shelton, Josh Cortez, Kristen Sebastian, Ellen Flowers, Scott Dole, Nina Vicha, and Carolyn and George Toledo. PC Moment: Bright young things raised a glass for year five of the black-tie Echelon 30M Gala — its name, a nod to the 30 million people served annually by The Salvation Army. Echelon is the nonprofit's young adult auxiliary, founded in Dallas by Michelle McAdam at the request of her grandmother, Ruth Altshuler, in 2010. In five years, Echelon's gala has raised more than $1 million for the cause. The evening began with a seated dinner for top donors and ended with a high-voltage after-party in the adjacent ballroom — a wild night of dancing.
