A Night of Philanthropic Adventurey Goodness and Beer.
Coming Monday August 18, the Mountain Folk Adventure Series will set up base camp at Bloomington’s finest oasis, The Tap Beer Company. This time we will be celebrating the Adventurers of this year’s Rally of the Americas and raising funds for the official charity: Gear Going Global.
The Mountain Folk Adventure series is a Bloomington based adventure group that is gaining notoriety, locally and internationally, for the unique events it puts on. In just over a year they have gained thousands of followers with only 7 events being hosted. Each event raises funds for different charities that we can all get behind.
This year’s Charity Chug will be raising funds for Gear Going Global, a local non-profit, that send athletic gear and school supplies to children in developing regions of the world. This particular event will be sending soccer equipment and school supplies to an orphanage in Cusco, Peru. The adventurers of this year’s Rally of the Americas will be hauling the gear with them, the length of the Americas, to deliver it personally to the charity.
New this year to the Charity Chug is Upland Brewery and Salt Creek Brewery. The makers of these fine crafted ales have donated beer for this event, and the sales from their beer will go directly to the charity. Stop by the Tap Monday, August 18, from 6pm-10pm for live music, silent auction, and few cold ones all for the sake of philanthropy. Please bring your lightly used or new athletic gear and school supplies to donate to Gear Going Global, and have a beer for charity!
