This weekend, Mack, Jack & McConaughey (MJ&M) returns to Austin for its fifth annual fundraising event where artwork from one of Lake Travis’ own — resident Kelly Brynteson of Kelly J Studios — will be auctioned off at the fashion show at JW Marriott on Friday, April 13.
If the names Mack, Jack & McConaughey sound familiar to you, they should. And yes, it is that McConaughey.
MJ&M is a fantastic fundraising effort that began in 2013. Started by three Texas legends — Academy Award-winning actor Matthew McConaughey, ACM Award-winning recording artist Jack Ingram, and ESPN analyst and Texas coaching legend Mack Brown — and dedicated to empowering children through education, health, and wellness.
Over the years, the nonprofit has given nearly 7.5 million dollars to charitable organizations. The funds raised through MJ&M 2018 will support CureDuchenne, Dell Children’s Medical Center, HeartGift, Just Keep Livin Foundation and The Rise School of Austin.
