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 $1,253,247.45.
This month, we are raising money for Access Justice Houston.
Access Justice Houston is a non-profit dedicated to expanding legal services in Houston and the surrounding area. In Houston, 72% of litigants are unable to afford an attorney, yet legal aid in Texas are woefully underfunded. We serve modest means clients, providing legal services on a reduced fee based on their ability to pay. We help Houstonians through some of their toughest moments. Whether it’s a divorce, custody issues, domestic violence, criminal charges and much more. AJH helps reduce the financial burden of protecting your family’s rights, because everyone should have the right to an attorney.
We are located at 924 Congress St. Houston Texas 77002.
