THE SCENE: The Moody Theatre at Austin City Limits Live was the recent setting where 750 Sociable VIPs attended the annual DKR 4th and Goal gala where guests were treated to a special evening of unforgettable experiences.
THE VIBE: The Austin-chic crowd began the evening on the ACL atrium sipping cocktails while perusing silent auction items that featured memorabilia from iconic sport, music and cultural icons. Other VIPs headed inside the Moody Theatre for a private meet and greet with Chris Carmack, Charles Esten and Jonathan Jackson, three members of the iconic ABC/CMT television show Nashville.
The fun continued as partygoers made their way to their seats for the evening’s program, which included words from Academy Award©-winning actor Matthew McConaughey as well as a spirited live auction that raised over $700,000. Capping off the program was an extended performance by Carmack, Esten and Jackson, who brought the crowd to their feet as they performed Nashville fan-favorite songs. The fun continued well into the night with an additional concert by Paul Overstreet and Justin Steel at the Patron after party.
THE CAUSE: The event raised over a million dollars for the Darrell K Royal Research Fund for Alzheimer’s Disease. The mission of the organization is to find a cure for Alzheimer’s in our lifetimes through expanding research into Mild Cognitive Impairment as well as expanding care and access to Texans.
