Annual Flavors of Amarillo

Its time again for the annual Flavors of Amarillo with the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. KZBZ PrimeTime News at Nine's Brianna Goodloe has the details.

I spoke with the president and CEO of the Amarillo Hispanic Chamber of Commerce to find out about the fund raiser.

The annual Flavors of Amarillo is an event you can bring the whole family to while supporting the community.

The event is full of food and entertainment and celebrates Hispanic History Month.

"We gather local restaurants from the area to come and display their flavors that they have and a very diverse group of restaurants come out and we also have entertainment, a lot of local talent as well as this year we are bringing in a mariachi band from san antonio to entertain the crowd,' Zach Lujan, President and CEO, Amarillo Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

The evening gets the names out of the local Hispanic vendors while giving proceeds to a scholarship fund.

Plus, if you attend you get some perks too.

"Tickets are going to be 20 dollars, they'll get you into the event, they'll get you a chance to win the truck we are giving away, and it'll get you an oil change. You can get them at the door or you can call the hispanic chamber and we can probably get you hooked you up with some tickets," said Lujan.

The fun starts at 6:00 tomorrow evening and like Zack said tickets are $20. It will be held at the Civic Center in the north exhibit hall.

And my favorite part is that it's all you can eat once inside.
