Thanks again to all of our corporate sponsors and the Minneapolis community for rallying behind this program and these kids. We’re looking forward to next year — we’re trying to raise 3,00 coats! If you’d like to help us out with planning or execution, please leave a note in the comments or contact Justin Johnson.
We want to extend a huge thank you to everyone who made last weekend’s fundraiser event so great! With your help, we were able to exceed our goal and provide more than 1,000 coats for kids in need!

This September, join us in our goal to provide warmth to 1,000 less privileged children in South Minneapolis. As ambassadors for Operation Warm, it is our mission to provide American made coats to kids. We believe that beyond warmth, new coats help kids have higher self-esteem, stay in school throughout the cold winter months and free up tight family resources that can help create a better future.
Since our fundraiser last year was such a success, we’ve decided to double our goal to 1,000 coats for the 2015 school year! But we’re going to need your help. Your $20 donation gets you access to some awesome food and beer, a silent auction, cigar roller, bagpipes, and musical entertainment by multiple bands, including White Iron Band as the headliner. You can get your ticket here!
Aside from providing some much needed warmth to kids in need, here’s what you can look forward to:
- Great Minnesota beer from Fulton
- Live music from $timulu$ Package, The Beavers, and White Iron Band
- Delicious food from Stanley’s On Wheels and MidNord Empanada Truck
- Custom rolled cigars from International Cigars
