When Matthew McConaughey visits your town, be prepared for a little magic to happen. The native Texan and famed actor spent his birthday handing out Thanksgiving turkeys to families in Lawrenceburg, Ky.

On Saturday, Nov. 4, Wild Turkey and Butterball sponsored the event, as part of the Wild Turkey Gives Back initiative. McConaughey, along with 250 volunteers, delivered 4,500 turkeys to local families just in time for Thanksgiving.

Wild Turkey is a Kentucky bourbon whose headquarters are just outside of Lawrenceburg, and McConaughey is their official spokesperson.
