$59,000 Raised for Hurricane Harvey Relief

Union Square Hospitality Group teamed up with Tito’s Handmade Vodka to support the Houston Food Bank’s response to Hurricane Harvey - $10 per cocktail sold benefited relief efforts - and together we raised $59,070.


Throughout September, Union Square Hospitality Group raised donations to support the Houston Food Bank’s heroic response to Hurricane Harvey. In partnership with our good friends at Texas-based Tito’s Handmade Vodka, each USHG restaurant featured their own take on a “Tito’s Texas Relief” cocktail.


$10 from each drink sold benefited the Houston Food Bank’s ongoing efforts to provide food, water, and supplies to residents of southeast Texas who have been impacted by Harvey’s catastrophic damage in the region. For those of us who find our passion in nourishing and nurturing guests in our restaurants, there’s a strong impulse to feed people in times of need—we’re grateful to Tito’s Handmade Vodka and to our guests for coming together to maximize our support for the Houston community.
