Home's Backyard Ball helps raised money for local charities

Posted: Updated:

One of the area's largest charity events and music festivals which kicked off Saturday morning in Amarillo.  
This is the 18th year for Homer's Backyard Ball.  

It originally started as a small backyard party but has grown to be bigger than ever.  

With several different Texas country bands, a BBQ cook off and others games, those who are there can have a great time while helping out several area charities.  
   
Money raised will benefit the North Texas Make A Wish foundation, the Kiva Shrine of Amarillo and the Juvenile Diabetes Research foundation.
