Local business owner starts fundraiser to help with Mr. Okra’s burial

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Craig J. Nero, the owner of Who Dat Coffee Café, has set up a fundraising page on the behalf of the family of Mr. Okra.

Authur Robinson, who was affectionately known as Mr. Okra, passed away Thursday, February 15 at the age of 75.

According to our partners at Nola.com|The Times-Picayune, Nero hopes that he can raise enough money for Robertson to have a proper send-off and so the Robinson family can continue the business.
