The 33rd annual Christmas roundup kicked off this weekend.
Volunteer Coordinator Renea Dauntes says, "it's two nonprofit organizations that have come together to raise funds for their education programs which provides all sorts of activities and events for people in the area to enjoy and further the arts."
Some education programs include special concerts and several different camps.
The Christmas Roundup is their biggest fundraiser of the year.
Dauntes says so far, they're pleased with the turnout.
"Yeseterday we had wondefurl attendance. We had about 720 people come in and we've already seen quite a few today"
70 vendors have teamed up with the two nonprofits to bring in christmas gifts of all kinds.
"Lots of toys for the little ones and clothes and jewelry. We've even bought some coffee and things like that."
With Christmas lights, landscaping deals, and even excercise equipment, there was soemthing for everyone.
If you can't make it out to the roundup, you can still help out and win a cool prize.
For $10.00 you can get in on a special drawing.
Dauntes says, "our opportunity to win this year is a trip to NYC, airfare for 2 and a three night stay at the Sheridon on Times Square, so yo'ure actually in Manhattan while you're there."
She tells us it's rare two nonprofits come together, both after the same goal.
So it may not be Christmas yet, but October 18-20 folks can head over the Civic Center to give a little, while getting a little.
There was also a silent auction.
Each vendor donated at least one item.
All the money will go toward the Amarillo Museum of Art Alliance and the Amarillo Symphony Guild.
