ROUND ROCK, Texas (KXAN) — They want to go viral.
Residents of The Enclave at Round Rock Senior Living are hoping Matthew McConaughey will accept their invitation to host their celebrity bingo event for charity.
The senior living’s representatives posted this video on Facebook in hopes of getting the superstar’s attention.
“Hey Matthew, long time no see,” one resident is seen saying in the video while pulling off her sun glasses. “We have something in common, so if you want to find out what it is, come to the Enclave,” another one teases.
The senior living is home to 78 residents, who say they want McConaughey to host the event because he’s from Austin and some of them remember his mom, Kay, from Sun City. “The residents all adore him and his movies,” said Molly Davis Nedley, Round Rock Sales Director at the living center.
They plan to donate the proceeds from the event to just keep livin, an organization founded by McConaughey and his wife, Camila, in support of high school students living healthy lives and making smart choices.
A fire at the center on Aug. 16 forced the evacuation of about 60 people that day and forced a resident to spend three weeks out of the community in different hotels. They had a big homecoming for that resident on Saturday, so staff members say the mood is very positive and hopeful McConaughey will come through for them.
“Make my dream come true, come and see me,” another resident is heard saying in the video.
They hope to schedule the event for any day around McConaughey’s schedule.
