THE BAR THAT GIVES BACK TO THE COMMUNITY!

The last thing most people expect from the owner of a bar is giving away all of his profits.

And that’s exactly what one group of owners is doing at a bar in downtown Houston.

The friends including businessman Brad Moore decided to open The Charity Bar.

Moore says after the servers and managers are paid all of the profits from the downtown watering hole go to charity.

He says since the Charity Bar has been open for a year they have raised and donated over $300,000 to various charities.

Moore says those charities include veterans, the Boys and Girls Club, Urban Harvest, and Habitat for Humanity just to name a few.

I asked Moore why he and his business partners decided to give up all of their profits he says because it feels good!


Note: The group of business owners formed an organization called OKRA… That stands for Organized Kollaborative on Restaurant Affairs. The group is made up of business owners from the inner loop who decided to concentrate their resources on downtown Houston. One of their efforts is the Charity Bar!
