Because summer vacations are now distant memories and the kids are back in school, we can look back on many exciting events and look forward to more. Young lawyers around the nation continue to make a difference while learning, helping others, and having fun.

Giving Back to the Community
On August 6, the Dallas Association of Young Lawyers (Texas) organized “Food for Thought” at the Tower Club. Food for Thought is an annual celebrity chef charity event whose proceeds benefit Big Thought, a creative learning organization striving to make imagination part of everyday learning for children. This year’s event featured chefs from many of Dallas’s top restaurants such as Tiffany Derry from Top Chef and Liza Garza from the Next Food Network Star as they showcase their culinary expertise with samplings of their signature dishes. A silent auction and a cork pull also were part of the evening’s festivities. The Dallas Association of Young Lawyers also will recognize former Dallas Cowboy Daryl “Moose” Johnston as its 2011 Gavel of Excellence Award recipient for his work with Slant 45.
