Have fun and contribute to a good cause? Heck Yeah! That’s what our fundraisers are all about! Each year we host two cool and (dare we say) “jazz hands-worthy” events here in beautiful Helena, MT. Proceeds from both festivities go toward helping people, businesses & communities thrive through the application of philosophy. To learn more about our galas see below!
The Reeder’s Alley Block Party
The Reeder’s Alley Block Party was created in 2015 as a celebration of Helena’s rich history and as a kick-off to summer. Since then, the event has seen substantial growth in attendance, number of food vendors, activities for all ages, and band popularity. Hosted by Merlin CCC – a local philosophy-based 501(c)(3) – this event continues to bring live music and entertainment, historic tours, street performers & local youth/adult dance acts, interactive and fun activities, and more to Helena’s oldest neighborhood, Reeder’s Alley.
Want more? In 2019, Merlin will be partnering with the Governor’s Cup! This means that race participants, Helenans, and community members from all over can stay and play the night away from 4pm-10pm! And…since we’ll be expanding the festivities into Park Avenue…you’ll have more room to dance, play, eat, drink & be merry!
A celebration of community and ideas, history and loved ones, and wellness in all of its forms, this FREE fundraiser event is kid-friendly, dog-friendly, and fun for the whole family. Proceeds support Reeder’s Alley and philosophy in the community. For more information visit merlinccc.org or e-mail [email protected].
The day of schedule of events (what’s happening & when) will be added to our website as things are finalized.

Grab your thinking cap, your best pals and your favorite clubs and join us for our fun, themed 2019 charity golf tournament!

Tickets include an 18-hole round w/ golf carts at Bill Roberts Golf Course and drink tickets, plus a post-tourney celebration in the new course club house with snacks, raffle, pin-prizes, and more!
