Because living in Minnesota rules, we give back to our community with Surly Gives A Damn (SGAD). We contribute to the fine organizations that are making the North a better place to live through charitable donations, partnerships, and volunteer events. Our volunteers are a really active, passionate bunch and man do they give a damn.

Well we’d be happy to. We make donations for charitable events to like-minded people and organizations all across the North.

Pulling Together

September 8, 2018 - 10:30 am-5:00 pm

Saint Paul

WCCO-TV’s Pulling Together is back! In its second year, this epic tug-of-war across the Mississippi River between Minneapolis and St. Paul is set to be BIGGER and BETTER. Surly will represent Minneapolis versus St. Paul’s Bad Weather Brewing again. Although Minneapolis emerged triumphant in 2017, Bad Weather out-tugged us. This aggression will not stand, man.

We’re raising money for Fraser. As the largest and most experienced provider of autism services in Minnesota, Fraser’s mission is to make a meaningful and lasting difference in the lives of children, adults and families with special needs. If you’d like to donate, that link is right here.

The event is Saturday, September 8th, at Hidden Falls Regional Park in St. Paul. We’ll be weighing in at 11:15 am and tugging at 12:30 pm if you’d like to cheer us on/mock us incessantly.

Sign up to volunteer at a Surly Gives a Damn event, get a t-shirt. Easy peasy. Wear it each time you volunteer with us and feel prouder each time, guaranteed.

Fine Print: If there are opportunities to volunteer at special events or bottle wax dippings, you need to first put in some time. (Sign up for one other SGAD event first, ya dummy.)
