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 $1,298,630.07.

This month, we are raising money for Cherish Our Children, Inc.

COCI’s No More Victims’ vision is for children of incarcerated parents to “Get Educated, Not Incarcerated”. Since NMV was first introduced into Houston schools two decades ago, nearly 100% of every senior class has graduated and tracking indicates that very few wind up incarcerated as adults.



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