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. 

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.
