Join us on October 10, 2023, as we honor Dawn Brown and the Mercedes-Benz Stadium Green Team with the Argon Award of Excellence during Southface’s annual Visionary Dinner.
Visionary Dinner, Southface’s keystone fundraising event, invites sustainability leaders, innovators, and our community of dedicated advocates to join us for an evening of celebration and purpose. Supporting Southface’s annual programming, Visionary Dinner brings us together in support of our vision of a healthy environment for all, achieved and sustained by innovation and equity in the communities we build together.
During the event, we will be presenting Southface’s Argon Award of Excellence to Dawn Brown and the Mercedes-Benz Stadium Green Team. From educating guests about the importance of recycling to teaching students what it means to be sustainable, the Mercedes-Benz Green Team has become a global inspiration for creating a world where sustainable and inclusive communities thrive.
Mercedes-Benz Stadium has been dedicated to being a Zero Waste Stadium since opening day in 2017. In June of 2022, MBS achieved TRUE precertification signifying the successful implementation of foundational programs and policies to divert at least 90 percent of waste from landfill, incineration (waste-to-energy) and the environment, operations needed to effectively pursue zero waste. And in 2023, became the first professional sports stadium worldwide to achieve TRUE Platinum certification for Zero Waste.
This year’s theme, All that Glimmers is Green, celebrates our collective dedication to a sustainable planet. While the attire is business casual, we encourage you to explore sustainable clothing options in your closet, through a rental service, or shopping for previously worn clothing at one of our GoodUse partners, like:
North Fulton Community Charities who recently completed energy upgrades through GoodUse, saving this key community resource with $14,000 in annual utility savings.
The event is being hosted in the Letitia Pate Evans Hall at Agnes Scott College 141 E College Ave, Decatur, GA 30030. We created a handy virtual map to help get you to the location, find visitor parking at the West Parking Deck, and get to the electric vehicle showcase.
There will also be golf carts available at the beginning of the event ferrying guests to the event space.
