23rd Annual Festival of Wines

The Exchange Club of Helena has made the difficult decision to cancel our annual Festival of Wines event this year due to COVID-19. However, the need for coats and boots is still viable and has steadily increased due to the novel pandemic.

In honor of our 23rd annual Festival of Wines, we will continue to fundraise to ensure we are able to meet the needs of our community through an online event!.

Donors can sponsor a coat or pair of boots (or both) through our online drive. We will also be accepting any dollar amount of donations to assist in our fundraising efforts.

Coats for Kids donations can be made here Coats for Kids.

Thank you for your continued support!

Exchange Club Night - Rush/Member Drive - February 21st - 4:00 pm - 9:30 pm

At Great Divide Ski Area
The Exchange Club is pleased to announce it will be hosting a member ski night at Great Divide Ski Area on Friday, February 21st. The evening is also rush event, so we encourage all members to attend and bring a prospective member. For members that aren’t interested in skiing, we still invite to you come hang out by the fire pit and enjoy live music in the saloon located at the base area.

In support of the event, the Club will be providing members and prospective members with a lift ticket for the evening as well as two drink tickets and chili for dinner. The lift runs from 4-9pm for night skiing and there will be live music by The Trevor Murray Band from 6:30-9:30pm at the saloon. The Club is not planning on providing rentals, but if you need them they can be reserved ahead of time by going to www.skigd.com. Type ‘Exchange Club night’ in the comments section and they’ll set things aside. The lines for tickets and rentals can be long and slow, so reservations will get you out on the hill quicker. If you need to get fit for rentals, please let us know so we can advise GD to staff accordingly.
