We couldn’t have asked for a better day & evening of weather to celebrate our 2nd Annual Summer Brew-Wine-Chu Community Fundraiser event. Thank you, Mother Nature! You’re the best!!!
This year (and for years moving forward because of how much we loved the community vibe of this years’ event) we decided to amp things up. First and foremost….open it up to everyone — no ticket costs, kid & dog-friendly, and ample amounts of free fun. We also decided to make it a block party extending from 6th Ave. to Broadway in the downtown Helena walking mall. It only seems right, right?! What a way to kick off summer & philosophy for all in Helena! Check out photos from our event below (Thank you Michael Chapman for donating your time to capture the fun!)!
We had so much fun at our annual fundraiser event! Block party, free admission, multiple food trucks, tasty brews & wines, multiple talented musicians, a crazy amount of family, dog & kid-friendly fun & free activities and games — check, check & check! This is what community is about!
Also…in anticipation of capturing the “awesomeness”, we were lucky enough to have secured an amazing & talented videographer (thank you Lenny Eckhardt — of Dead Dino Films — and for Sarah Elkins & Bob Schmidt for recommending such a stellar cat!) to capture the event day fun and phenomenal group of sponsors, donors & volunteers who came out in support of the cause. Check out the video below!!
