At OKRA Charity Saloon, witness the strength of Houston’s community and how these organizations make our city a healthier, happier, and more creative place to live. For each drink or food item purchased, guests receive one voting ticket that they may cast for one of four local 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations. The charities must be based in the Greater Houston Area. The charity with the most votes at the end of the month receives the next month’s proceeds. We encourage you to take the time to learn more about the organizations that speak to you and find ways to get involved.
If you know someone or are part of an organization that would like to participate at OKRA, apply here.
TOTAL DONATION TO-DATE: $1,286,071.53.
This month, we raise 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.

Every December, we invite back charities who competed over the past year and did not win their month’s votes. We want to show our thanks for their participation at OKRA and for the hard work they do daily. So this month, rather than voting between four charities, participate in narrowing 32 charities to one winner—not an easy choice! Every seven days, the charities with the most votes will move on until we have a winner, which will be announced on January 1st.
Throughout the past year, we’ve witnessed the strength of Houston’s community and how these organizations make our city a healthier, happier, and more creative place to live.
While we can’t help every charity all the time, it’s been a blessing to help those we can. We encourage you to take time to learn more about the organizations that speak to you and find ways to get involved.
We wouldn’t have any success without the willing participation of Houston’s good causes or your eagerness to have fun.
