Monday brings yet another star-studded event to Austin, and Austin-based TV Host and Producer Kimberlie Dykeman is right in the middle of it all! N.Y.’s MagicBullet Media and Full Picture, the PR and production company famous for the CW’s Project Runway, have engaged Dykeman as producer for the much-anticipated Andy Roddick Foundation 4th Annual Fundraising Gala, benefitting children’s charities in Texas. Dykeman will be coordinating a production crew (from AMS Pictures) to capture interviews of the evening’s headlining celebrities, including the hosts, Andy Roddick and his wife Brooklyn Decker, Sir Elton John, John Legend and the Dave Matthews Band.
Red carpet coverage will include catching up with Colorado Rockies’ pitcher Huston Street and University of Texas Coach Mack Brown, as well as footage of Elton John’s private performance. Held at the Hilton Austin, the event brings together celebrities, athletes and philanthropists for an evening of dinner, dancing, and giving, with a live auction. All proceeds from the evening will go to benefit local children’s organizations including: KIPP Austin College Prep, The Settlement Home for Children, Austin Partners in Education, and Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas.
“Being hand-selected for my expertise in creating memorable moments for media is always exciting,” said Dykeman. “But helping world-renowned athletes and celebrities have an even greater impact in the lives of countless more children in need is an absolute honor!” Dykeman herself supports LIVESTRONG™ and several other charities, donating her time and proceeds from her SOAPBOX® brand of products, including her book “PURE SOAPBOX”, the first in a motivational series.
