CHARITY WIRE — Yesterday, both Austin locations of Hopdoddy Burger Bar vowed to donate 100% of sales to benefit flood relief efforts via the Barnabas Connection and raised nearly $45,000. In 2011, Hopdoddy raised $11,000 in response to the devastating fires in Bastrop; the popular burger outlet hoped to exceed that amount this time around. [EaterWire]
