Steak Your Support, an annual event held by Brazos Valley Cares, is dedicated to assisting men and women who have served in the U. S. military. BVC has $288,000 in total donations since our inception. We have donated more than $133,000 to the Warrior and Family Support Center in San Antonio since 2013 with $155,000 in donations remaining in the Brazos Valley. As we thankfully find fewer veterans needing the services of the Warrior and Family Support Center, in 2018 we allocated 87% of donations to serve veterans in the Brazos Valley. Most donations go toward veteran service organizations like American Legion, TAMU Veteran Resource Center, Aggie Shields, Entrepreneurial Bootcamp for Veterans to name a few. However, we have spent $41,700 in the last three years on our own Emergency Fund for veterans, with $22,000 of those funds distributed since April 1, 2018.
Steak Your Support is a fun evening with a steak dinner and open bar that will feature a 5-gun raffle, stretch drawing, bucket raffles, Kendra Scott jewelry pull, wine & whiskey pull, live and silent auctions. Please review the attached information to see how you or your business can support this worthy cause that benefits the deserving men and women who have served our country so well.
