The McConaugheys stepped out in style for a good cause.

The event was a fundraiser benefitting McConaughey’s children’s charity, which he co-founded with football coach Mack Brown and singer Jack Ingram — thus the name Mack, Jack & McConaughey Gala.

It appears to be years since all five members attended an event together. The last time the family posed on a red carpet was in 2019 when the Oscar winner was honored at the 2019 Texas Medal Of Arts Awards on Feb. 27, 2019 in Austin.

Despite their big careers and fame, Alves McConaughey previously told TODAY that her husband is “actually very disciplined and very hands-on.”

“He is chill and laid back, but he also has a very disciplined mentality,” she said. “That’s how he’s been able to do the work he’s done and accomplish what he does.”

She said the “Dallas Buyers Club” star is no different than other parents.

“It’s just like raising kids... as any family would do. It’s got its challenges and its blessings, but I would say it’s fun,” she said.

In July 2008, the couple welcomed their first child, son Levi.

In a September interview with TODAY.com, McConaughey talked about his son and revealed the "big lesson" he's learned from Levi.

"My eldest child teaches me daily about consideration. He's extremely considerate," McConaughey said.

In an October 2020 interview with People, McConaughey shared that his son is really into music.

"Basically he came out of the womb knowing a minor from major key on the piano," McConaughey said. "In the last six months, he really got into listening to composers, and he now can listen to a movie and tell you, ‘Oh, that’s Hans Zimmer,’ or ‘That’s John Williams,’ which is really cool.”

Other than music, Levi adores surfing. Over on his Instagram, the teen shares posts of himself riding the waves. In March 2023, McConaughey shared a picture of Levi's "surf souvenirs," which showcased his back bandaged up.

In July, McConaughey and Alves McConaughey revealed in an Instagram video that they let their son create an Instagram account when he turned 15.

“Yes, we are allowing you, Levi, today on your 15th birthday, to join the social media universe,” McConaughey said in the clip.

Levi has used his social media account mostly to share photos of his famous family and their adventures, including a Sept. 14 post that was a picture of himself reading his dad’s new book, “Just Because.”

He penned the caption, “It has been so cool to watch my dad these past few years. Working on new projects and watching them succeed. He’s been writing and creating and to see his first book #GreenlightsBook was awesome! Now he’s on to his second book, #JustBecauseBook and im really excited about it. Can’t wait to see what he does next…”

On Jan. 28, Levi wished his mom a happy birthday in a video he shared on Instagram.

“MY MOM IS THE BOMB,” he captioned the post.

In the video, Levi said, “Love you so much, and thank you for being the best mom that I could ask for, that we could ask for, seriously. Love you so, so, so much, happy birthday."

Vida Alves McConaughey

In January 2010, McConaughey welcomed his daughter, Vida, with Alves McConaughey.

McConaughey told TODAY.com in his September interview that he learned "leniency and forgiveness" from his daughter.

"She'll put you in jail, but she'll also give you the key to get out of the cell when she puts youin," he joked.

In December 2020, fans got to see a glimpse of Vida's personality when she joined her dad on Amy Jo Martin’s“Why Not Now?”podcast. When McConaughey was asked, “What’s one lesson you find yourself learning over and over?”he turned to his daughter for help after he found himself a little stumped.

Once she gave it some thought, Vida answered the question for her dad and said, "Trusting, I guess, when you correct us. A lot of times you correct us and then you come back and you explain why you corrected us, but usually, we’re just like …"

“‘We got it the first time,’" McConaughey said while completing his daughter's sentence.

However, that same month, Alves McConaughey shared a moment when Vida and Levi took a picture of their dad for a magazine, showing that McConaughey does trust his kids.

“Because of quarantine we couldn’t do normal photoshoots so our kids have become the professional photographers for Matthew’s latest magazine covers!" Alves McConaughey wrote on Instagram when she shared a behind-the-scenes look of their kids taking a photo of their dad.

"It’s amazing to see what they have done! Very proud!!" she added.

On Jan. 4, McConaughey took to Instagram to pay tribute to his daughter on her 14th birthday.

For his post, McConaughey shared a beautiful photo of Vida standing in a field and another pic of her looking off into the distance.

He wrote, “To Vida, who never passed a flower she didn’t pick, Happy Birthday. *A day late because my mobile device flew out of my pocket on the roller coaster loop at her birthday yesterday!*”

Livingston Alves McConaughey

Livingston is the baby of the family. In December 2012, McConaughey and Alves McConaughey welcomed their third child, son Livingston.

During his September interview with TODAY.com, McConaughey said he adores how Livingston is determined to achieve his goals in life by having a "tunnel vision focus on achievement."

"He gets extremely focused," the "Magic Mike" star said. "And when I see that look in his eye, I already know that today he's going to play great or he's going to nail this, and he does."

On Livingston's 10th birthday, his mom posted a picture of him blowing out the candles on his birthday cake.

"Nothing fancy…just us…December 28th it was Livingston’s birthday!!!" she wrote. "All he wanted to do is go to Altitude the trampoline place in Austin and an ice cream cake! May your heart my son keep it’s simplicity as you grow in this complicated world!! You challenge me and teach me daily for that I am grateful! What a blessing you are! 💚💛💚💛💚💛💚💛💚💛💚💛."

On Livingston's 11th birthday, she shared photos she'd taken from Levi's page.

"Well… When your oldest son has such a great post for his little brothers birthday, I give up coming up with my own!😂😂 re-posting it! Today we celebrate, our youngest, turning 11!!!" she wrote. "He bring so much joy and learnings to our lives. It is hard to put into words!!"

Levi's post had said something similar:

"Happy 11th lil bro, you’re growing up so fast!" he captioned the slideshow, along with a "happy birthday" hashtag.
