UFC raised the funds by auctioning off two seats in UFC President Dana White’s VIP section for UFC FIGHT NIGHT: KATTAR vs. EMMETT, which took place in Austin in June.
“Big thanks and appreciation goes to UFC for collaborating with us in our efforts to support the people of Uvalde following the tragic mass shooting,” said Matthew and Camila McConaughey, Founders of The just keep livin’ Foundation. “The funds generated through this partnership will help provide for both the immediate and long-term needs of the surviving families and the entire community during the long and difficult healing process. With gratitude, in the meantime and all times, just keep livin.”
The McConaughey’s launched the Uvalde Relief Fund in June, following the tragic Robb Elementary School shooting in which 21 people were killed and 17 were injured.
McConaughey, a native of Uvalde, traveled to his hometown the following week with his family to raise awareness and funds for the families of the victims while launching the relief fund. 100% of all donations to the relief fund support grief counseling and other immediate and long-term needs of the community.
