THE SCENE: Over the course of two eventful days in Austin, hundreds turned out for a non-stop parade of things Austin is most known for: fun, fashion, music and sport. The 4th annual Mack, Jack and McConaughey once again pulled out all the stops for a tour-de-force for those fortunate enough to be a part of this memorable experience.
THE VIBE: The jammed-packed two days began at Austin’s ACL Moody Theatre for a good old fashioned Texas gala that kicked off the two-day soirée, capped off by a show-stopping performance by multi-platinum artist Dierks Bentley and Grammy award- winning musician Kacey Musgraves. The next morning, the action continued inside and out as the men hit the links for a golf tournament at Spanish Oaks Country Club while the women headed to Austin’s JW Marriott and were treated to a Veronica Beard fashion show presented by Nordstrom. Guests then returned to the ACL Moody Theatre for a Jack and Friends concert featuring such acts as Eric Church and Jamey Johnson capped off by a Private VIP Jack & Friends After Party presented by Patron at the W Hotel.
THE CAUSE: The two-day event raised over $1.7M for various children’s charities including three Austin-based non-profits: Dell-Children’s Medical Center, HeartGift and The Rise School for Children.
