Teaming up with actor Matthew McConaughey and Mack Brown, head football coach of the University of Texas, Ingram and company just announced their special, two-day event called Mack, Jack & McConaughey (MJ&M), which is set to take place April 11-12, 2013 in Austin, Texas.
MJ&M is a nationwide effort to benefit multiple charities that support children empowerment with a goal of making a difference in the lives of underserved children.
“We wanted to create a true, lasting impact and that inspired us to come together,” said

MJ&M came together as an organization headed by Sally and Mack Brown, Amy and Jack Ingram, and Camila and Matthew McConaughey that will be hosted annually. By uniting forces, they are able to maximize their impact on organizations across the nation.
