The Texas Bucket List was recently awarded a 2018 Lone Star Emmy Award for its special on the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. The special was dedicated to those who were affected by one of the state’s most destructive storms and the state’s effort to help them rebuild. Money raised during the special benefited the Rebuild Texas Fund. There were three segments within the episode: The Devastation of Hurricane Harvey, Checking on a Few Friends After the Storm and Shorty’s Place Endures Hurricane Harvey.
The Texas Bucket List is honored to receive such a prestigious award for a special that raised awareness about the devastating affects of Hurricane Harvey and the emotional outpouring of support from our friends and neighbors. We are also grateful to have had the opportunity to help aid in the relief effort through the Rebuild Texas Fund. There are still Texans needing help and you can still give by clicking this link…..

The final segment portrayed the incredible contrast of a bar called Shorty’s Place in Port Aransas before and after Harvey. This bar is known for its kind atmosphere and after Harvey, Shorty’s Place was a beacon of hope for the locals. To view click on picture below.
