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 $1,224,327.23.
This month, we are raising money for It Takes a Tribe.
It Takes A Tribe is a non-profit organization formed by Kelvin Williams (The Urban Farmer). Their goal is to seek and circulate knowledge, resources, skills and opportunities to ensure a sustainable society by engaging in numerous activities that promote skills, healthy eating, active living and community engagement. For the past few years, they have been initiating and developing community and school gardens in Urban Houston. They are committed to providing quality nutrition that is accessible to all through education and learning skills hands on.
We are located at 924 Congress St. Houston Texas 77002.
