The Boots, Business and BBQ fundraiser was the first of the Coastal Bend United events. The event raised $258,000 that was distributed to businesses throughout the Coastal Bend to help them reopen after Hurricane Harvey. 

Sponsored by AEP Texas and food graciously donated by The Mustangs and Bikefest, proceeds from this event raised money to distribute funds to businesses in the Coastal Bend that needed immediate assistance as they began to rebuild from Hurricane Harvey's devastation. 

In addition to the local businesses and partners that financially contributed to this event, Rebuild Texas gave matching funds to help distribute as much money to Coastal Bend businesses as possible.
