HOUSTON (KTRK) --Twenty Houston restaurants are participating in the city's first ever Black Restaurant Week.
Each restaurant creates a special menu including brunch, lunch and dinner.
A portion of the proceeds go to a great organization called Change Happens.
Change Happens is affiliated with 18 other non-profits that offer programs for youth, the homeless and HIV prevention.
The owner of Holley's says it's important to give back.
"I think for the cause of course it's a great cause and it kind of enlightens the community of the African American restaurants that are presently in business," said chef Mark Holley.
There are many other events going on for Black Restaurant Week. You can see those events and a list of the restaurants participating by going to houbrw.com.
