Wait, if Coach Mack Brown is moving to Chapel Hill, N.C. to coach at University of North Carolina again, what happens to the "Mack" in "Mack, Jack & McConaughey"?
Turns out one of Austin's biggest charity parties is not in danger.
“Sally and I are excited about the possibilities ahead for MJ&M and remain steadfast in our commitment to the event and the important charity beneficiaries," Brown says. "We are so grateful to Matthew and Jack for all their work and the incredible musicians, fashion designers, friends and sponsors who join us year after year to help raise millions to empower kids and save lives.”
The sound you just heard was a big sigh of relief from top party captain Jennifer Horn Stevens, who is already turning the concerts, gala, fashion show and golf tourney into a national event.
"I short, nothing changes and they are fully committed," Stevens says. "And personally I’m optimistic we will be able to find and recruit new sponsor opportunities in the future. We already have significant support for MJ&M coming from outside of Austin and to me, that’s a great thing for the charity beneficiaries."
The event returns with headliner Chris Stapleton on April 25-26.
