HOUSTON (February 15, 2013)—A new bar in Houston offers customers not only a relaxed atmosphere with good drinks and food, but also the pledge that 100 percent of its profits will be donated to a different local charity or social cause each month, and patrons can vote for which charity benefits from their Merlots and martinis.
The Original OKRA Charity Saloon in downtown Houston is one of several bars around the country that are using the business as a way to give back to local communities and also providing people a creative method of being philanthropic.
There are similar bars in Washington, D.C., and Austin and another planned for Portland, Ore.
