The NACE Austin annual fundraiser Eat the Heat—on Aug. 13, 2015, at Shoal Crossing Event Center—was a fun-filled evening with local chefs from the top catering companies, restaurants and hotel kitchens, local breweries and wineries, a silent auction, music and other entertainment. The fundraiser proceeds benefit the Foundation of NACE and its local charity partner, Keep Austin Fed. Keep Austin Fed is a volunteer based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that gathers wholesome and nutritious surplus food from commercial kitchens and distributes it to area charities that serve hungry people in need.

The International Live Events Association (ILEA) Dallas Chapter spread some holiday cheer at its annual Holiday Giveback. The organization chose to work with Senior Source and the Diversicare facility. Members of the group held a party for the facility complete with caroling, live music, holiday crafts and bingo—and of course plenty of cookies and punch. The group also collected items for Diversicare’s wish list, along with a $5 donation from each member who registered for the networking happy hour that followed the party.
