Jack Ingram, Mack Brown and Matthew McConaughey launch children's charity
Celebrities are in Austin trying to raise money for children.
As if Jack Ingram, Mack Brown and Matthew McConaughey aren't enough. It was announced earlier Thursday Grammy Award-winning artist John Mellencamp is headlining Thursday night's gala night.
This is the first joint fundraising effort by Texas Head Football Coach, Mack Brown, Country Music artist Jack Ingram and actor Matthew McConaughey.
It supports organizations that positively impact the lives of underserved children all across the country.
This is a two-day event happening in Austin, with a concert and gala Thursday followed by a celebrity golf tournament and fashion show Saturday.
Supporting this event will impact more than 23 countries around the world.
"'Cause there's a million great causes. There's over a million great things to do and I think if you just pick one and say, when the phone rings, I'm interested in answering it and I want to talk about it and see it on my proverbial desk on Monday morning, that's what I was happy to find," McConaughey said.
The event is the primary fundraising effort for the year, for charitable organizations supported by these three men.
