Join us October 1 for Visionary Dinner!

The Argon Award is presented at Southface’s annual Visionary Dinner to acknowledge outstanding Georgia leadership toward achieving a sustainable future. The 2013 Argon Award was presented to The Kendeda Fund for their noteworthy environmental stewardship. Barry Berlin, managing director for Atlantic Trust Company, accepted the Argon Award on behalf of The Kendeda Fund as its longtime advisor and facilitator.

Reserve your seat now for the 2014 Visionary Dinner on Wednesday, October 1 in the Egyptian Ballroom of the historic Fox Theatre. Each year the Visionary Dinner is anticipated by the Atlanta business community for the convergence of more than 500 business leaders, policy makers, design, development and construction professionals and sustainability innovators in one evening. Now in its 16th year, the dinner raises awareness and funding for Southface’s continued work in sustainable community development, high performance affordable housing, green jobs training, clean energy and green building.

The evening features a memorable dining experience provided by Atlanta’s top chefs who collaborate with Whole Foods Market to create a sumptuous, wine-paired and locally-sourced feast.
