AUSTIN, Texas -- Actor and Texas native Matthew McConaughey is planning to hold a fundraiser for fellow Texans impacted by last week's major winter storm that caused widespread power and water outages across the state.

McConaughey says he will hold a virtual benefit in the next couple of weeks to "raise funds for the long-term efforts necessary to stabilize and rebuild Texas."
