GrillsGiving - A Celebration of Meat & Music


BBQ cook-off, live music at Mission County Park


Thank you for joining us this year at GrillsGiving! It was a sunny, crisp day filled with tons of lip-smacking BBQ and sides (including a prize-winning banana pudding chosen by you!), live music, and family fun. Net proceeds benefit the REAP (Residential Energy Assistance Partnership) fund.


Check out images from this year's event HERE.


REAP was established in 2002 through a partnership between CPS Energy, Bexar County and the City of San Antonio. The program provides financial assistance to help the elderly, medically dependent and low-income families with young children with their utility bill. CPS Energy commits up to $1 million annually toward REAP, which provides direct customer assistance.  REAP is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit entity.

Congrats to the Winners!
