Vestal, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Some local children didn't have to wait an extra week for some of their presents.

Twenty children were given a shopping spree at Dick's Sporting Goods alongside pro golfer and Horseheads native Joey Sindelar.

Members from local Boys and Girls clubs were chosen for the program, based on need.

The children were given $200 each, and encouraged to stock up on necessities such as jackets, boots, and hats.

"I know that an event like this will put a big smile on our face but I know internally, it puts a big smile on our faces because it's just an awesome look at a different side of life, its pretty pretty cool," said Sindelar.

Dick's Sporting Goods teams up with Broome County Community Charities to put the event on each year.
