A little about the Citywide Holdup...

Citywide Holdup draws hundreds of volunteers and sends them to street corners throughout Austin to “hold up” passing drivers/motorists for change.

This event was the original idea of Marence Daniel Anderson who became a Wrangler in the Fall of 1996. Unfortunately, M.D. passed away before his vision was realized, but his closest friends and family became determined to fulfill his dream.

Since the first City Wide Hold Up, when the original goal of $10,000 was smashed, the Texas Wranglers has been dedicated to improving the event and improving the lives of the people served by Easter Seals, whose dedication over the last 20 years has enabled us to raise over $475,000.
