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 $1,286,071.53.

This month, we are raising money for Pure Mutts Animal Sanctuary.


Pure Mutts Animal Sanctuary is a place for older and terminally ill dogs to come and spend their last days in loving care. We also give temporary homes to dogs that are down on their luck and need place to heal before finding forever homes. Animals with broken bones, broken spirits and broken hearts find their way here to rest, recoup and re-discover love and trust.


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