Houston Cinema Arts Society is one of four charities “competing” at the OKRA CHARITY SALOON, an initiative from local like-minded restaurant and bar owners. In 2011, they founded OKRA, the Organized Kollaboration on Restaurant Affairs, to pursue community and charitable initiatives by raising funds for non-profits in Houston, TX.

The concept at the OKRA CHARITY SALOON 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 charity with the most votes at the end of the month receives the next month’s proceeds.

To claim June’s proceeds, HCAS needs all of you to visit OKRA CHARITY SALOON in May, every or any day, anytime from 4pm-2am, and drop your drink ticket in the HCAS vault. The drinks menu is extensive – including non-alcoholic – and the snacks are yummy.
