A group of like-minded restaurant and bar owners in Houston recognized a need for a public voice for independent businesses in the industry. In 2011, they founded OKRA, the Organized Kollaboration on Restaurant Affairs, to pursue community and charitable initiatives in the city.

At OKRA Charity Saloon, the concept is simple. For each drink purchased, guests receive one vote that they may cast that night for one of four charities selected by OKRA’s members. The charities are all locally based. The charity with the most votes at the end of the month receives the next month’s proceeds. Interested charities, please submit an application.

Our current giving total is $1,268,918.47.

This month, we are raising money for Houston MET Dance.

METdance’s mission is to enhance the quality of life for our community through the instruction and the performance of dance. The Center and professional company provide critical arts education and scholarships, free or low-cost community access to the art of dance, and high caliber concert performances all over this city.

We are located at 924 Congress St. Houston Texas 77002.
