HOMETOWN HAPPY HOUR
October 2021 | TBD
Check back to see who we're teaming up with for this annual, one-day event! There is a $10 cover charge to participate which includes the all you can eat buffet. All proceeds benefit the United Way of Amarillo & Canyon’s 2021/2022 Campaign. This is a "can't miss event"!
October 2021 | 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
More than 800 teenagers from area middle schools and high schools will unite at the Amarillo Civic Center-Grand Plaza to learn about the needs in their own community and what they can do to make a difference. Buses from AISD, CISD, Bushland ISD, River Road and Highland Park will bring their students downtown and over the course of the day, students will visit at least 30 programs funded by United Way of Amarillo & Canyon donors.
In 2020, students attended a virtual Youth Leadership Day, went back to their schools and helped raise over $55,000.00 among their peers for the 2020/2021 campaign. This year, student leadership partnered up with the United Way of Amarillo and Canyon’s community impact allocation process to create a bigger impact for all programs in a year where many programs struggled. Youth Leadership Cabinet is excited to add $55,195.10 to the United Way of Amarillo & Canyon allocations for 2020. Allocations from this year’s campaign (2020/2021) will be announced Spring 2021.
April 2022 | 6:30 p.m.
Join us for the 21st annual Victory Celebration! We'll celebrate the accomplishments of donors and volunteers in the annual fundraising campaign. More information to come.
