Celebs Unite for Texas Causes
Mack, Jack & McCounaghey are back for 2nd year of fundraising with Badgley Mischka, Sheryl Crow and more
If you weren't lucky enough to make it to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York this winter, never fear! Fashion powerhouse Badgley Mischka are bringing their latest collection to you. Hosted by supermodel Camilla Alves McConaughey, Sally Brown and Amy Ingram, the fashion show is part of a two-day fundraiser hosted by Mack, Jack & McConaughey.
Now in its second year, the MJ&M event is the brainchild of Mack Brown, Jack Ingram and Matthew McConaughey to empower kids. Beneficiaries of the 2014 MJ&M include The Rise School of Austin, just keep livin' foundation, HeartGift, Grounded in Music and CureDuchenne.
The two day fete kicks off on Thursday, April 24 with the MJ&M Gala and a live auction held at ACL Live at the Moody Theater. The gala features an intimate performance from Sheryl Crow, live auction and a VIP dinner. Tables, which ranged in price from $1,000 to $30,000, are sold out.
On Friday, April 25, the Celebrity Golf Tournament tees off at Barton Creek Country Club, giving participants a chance to rub elbows with some famous folks while working on their handicap. For those who prefer a less strenuous activity, Neiman Marcus will play backdrop to an exclusive look at Badgley Mischka's latest collection. In addition to the famed fashion duo (named Vogue's Top 10 American Designers) being in attendance, fashionistas will glimpse the couture designs that are a favorite of the Hollywood set.
The two-day epic fundraisers ends back at ACL Live with an exclusive performance from Jack Ingram & Friends. Jack's "friends" include some pretty legendary names. Expect to see Little Big Town, Lyle Lovett, Allen Shamblin, Blu Sanders, Bobby Pinson, Butch Walker and many more. For those interested in the VIP experience, expect such perks as a VIP reception, after-party access and premium seating.
For those of us who can't quite swing the VIP treatment, you can still get in on the action. Reasonably priced tickets for the Jack Ingram & Friends concert are still available and can be purchased here. Great music, a good cause and a possible celeb sighting? Sounds like the perfect Friday night to us.
