The ISES Austin Day of Education event took place Sept. 23 at the Blanton Museum of Art in Austin. The event featured keynote speaker Steve Kemble, also known as America’s Sassiest Lifestyle Guru, along with other notable presenters including Erica Prewett, the owner of A Big To Do Event of Atlanta and president elect of ISES Atlanta.

Great lighting is key. Smart décor is a must. But the mood of any gala, auction or awards ceremony lies largely on the shoulders of its master of ceremonies. Who you choose to represent your cause or organization on stage can be the difference between an event that is “ho-hum” or “electrifying.”

Built at the turn of the 20th century, Mattie’s at Green Pastures was once the estate of Henry and Martha “Mattie” Miner Faulk. In 1946, Faulk’s daughter Mary and Mary’s husband Chester Koock opened the fine dining restaurant Green Pastures at the address, and over the years, they hosted lavish parties and grand occasions for celebrities, governors and visiting dignitaries. Mary Koock also catered many parties at the Lyndon B. Johnson Ranch.
