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 $1,215,010.10.
This month, we are raising money for Animal Justice League.
Animal Justice League (AJL) is a 501(c)3 tax exempt dog and cat rescue organization with a focus on the Oak Forest and surrounding neighborhoods of Houston, TX.
Their purpose is to rescue and care for stray and homeless dogs and cats, raise funds to assist with medical expenses, foster and place animals in loving and suitable adoptive homes, educate the public about proper care of animals, and the importance of spay and neuter.
Animal Justice League is run solely by volunteers. They rely on fosters, adopters, donations, and most importantly, community support to make it all happen!
We are located at 924 Congress St. Houston Texas 77002.
Open daily 4pm-2am. Happy hour 4-6:30pm.
