This unique event takes place at Mission County Park, where participants and guests will enjoy free parking, a festival-like atmosphere, including a competitive barbeque cook-off, live music and kid activities! The San Antonio River and Mission County Park are the perfect backdrop to host this family-friendly event. Net proceeds from GrillsGiving benefit the REAP (Residential Energy Assistance Partnership) fund.
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.
