Houston LGBT Club Raises Thousands In Support Of Multiple Sclerosis, Aids Services Of Houston.
(HOUSTON) — A Houston LGBT bar owner has delivered on a mighty large promise made to his customers in the community. Crocker Bar owner Grey Stephen’s vowed on social media last month to donate 50% of sales in March to benefit the two charities in the greater Houston area.
The ‘everybody-knows-your-name’ bar in the heart of Montrose was showered with support from patrons. The bar sold a total of 21,786 drinks. A statement of support from the community, as Stephens himself was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2014.
“I have Multiple Sclerosis and I cannot thank you enough for helping me in this battle,” Stephens said. “I don’t think you will ever know how much this means to me.”
Stephens and business partner Bruce Reeves’ donation of $10,893.00 will be divided among the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and Aids Services of Houston. That’s $5,446.50 for each of the two charities.
On top of the bar’s donation raised to fight MS, Reeves will be making an additional $12,000 donation that he has raised. Reeves an avid supporter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society participates each year in the MS150.
If you missed the opportunity and would like to donate you can drop off checks at Crocker Bar made out to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS).
