The Austin hospitality industry stepped up in a big way, with dozens of bars and restaurants donating proceeds to Hurricane Harvey relief and collecting relief supplies. Many of the campaigns have ended, but a few businesses continue to collect money and goods.
When you purchase an Alamo Drafthouse ticket online, the site gives you the opportunity to contribute to Americares, Greater Houston Community Foundation’s Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, and the Food Bank of Corpus Christi. The Drafthouse, which matched $20,000 in donations, will continue the campaign through the month.
