Philly is great at rallying for other cities in times of crisis.

Local hospitality and entertainment company FCM Hospitality is contributing all revenue from the six locations it manages on Thursday, Aug. 31, to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, founded by Houston’s mayor and administered by the Greater Houston Community Foundation (and helpfully identified by The New York Times as not a scam).

According to a release, the company will donate at least $50,000, though it hopes to exceed that amount.

“From one U.S. city to another, it is important that Philadelphia shows its support for Houston and this is a great way for the community to do that,” the statement reads.

Participating establishments:

  • Morgan’s Pier
  • Parks on Tap at Cliveden Park
  • Parks on Tap at Clark Park
  • Culture on Tap (City Hall courtyard)
  • Dolphin Tavern
  • William Street Common
