GrillsGiving 2023 raised $350k with net proceeds benefitting Residential Energy Utility Assistance


CPS Energy’s 8th Annual GrillsGiving: 
A Celebration of Meat + Music

Join us and celebrate what makes San Antonio great, delicious food and amazing people!

Since 2014, GrillsGiving has been sizzling and firing up tasty barbeque for CPS Energy employees, our customers, and the community. This family friendly event welcomes everyone from across San Antonio to meet up on the southside of town for a great time. Guests will enjoy a friendly festival-like atmosphere, including a competitive barbeque cook-off, live music, activities for kids and free parking! 

Net proceeds from GrillsGiving will benefit the Residential Energy Assistance Partnership (REAP) fund.
