AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) — The Amarillo Museum of Art Alliance is the fundraising arm of the Museum. Money raised through the Alliance goes to support the educational programs of the Museum.
The largest fundraiser for the Alliance is Christmas Roundup: A Holiday Market. This iconic event helps shoppers ring in the holiday season, while also raising money to support the educational programs of the Amarillo Museum of Art (AMoA). One-hundred percent of the proceeds from this fundraiser stay local, enriching lives around the Panhandle through exhibitions, education and collections. Christmas Roundup attracts more than 6,000 shoppers, 150 merchants and takes the efforts of more than 50 volunteers each year. Mark your calendar for November 1-3, 2019.
