Help Launch A Night On Olympus As A Business!

Greetings one and all!

My name is Robert Irwin, and I am the creator and producer of the annual charity show called A Night on Olympus. So far since the creation of this show we have been able to hold 4 annual shows and 2 online fundraisers through the Olympus Banner that has together raised just shy of 20,000.00 for local and international charities. Some of the charities we have raised funds for include Mission 22, Nourish Pierce County, AHAT Homecare, Cascade AIDS Project, The Imperial Sovereign Rose Court and the Imperial Sovereign Court of Tacoma. We are extremely grateful for the support over the years that has made the show such a success.

One thing that we have always strived for is to put on an amazing and entertaining show every year while raising funds for truly to noble causes. The goal is to have fun while doing good for others. So far I think that we have excelled at achieving this by bringing fresh show ideas every year to keep people coming back.

Now it is time to grow and expand to meet the growing needs of the community around us. With that being said, we are launching an official support campaign to register A Night On Olympus as an official non-for-profit organization with the State of Washington. The plan from there is to register it with the IRS as a 501c3 nonprofit so that we are recognized nationwide.

Why take these extra costly steps? Because being a non-profit can open so many more doors to help those in need without having the same tax burden of a regular corporation. By doing so we are also giving donors a chance to write off their donations as a charitable contribution.

With this will also come the opening of a corporate bank account, procurement of licenses through the State for both liquor and gambling, and the filing of all necessary paperwork so that everything we do is both transparent and legal.

This is where I get to the point and ask for your help. Registering through Legal Zoom, filing fees, ect. all requires start up funding that at current I cannot supply on my own. Once the business is registered we will have a Board of Trustees appointment and start the very real and hard work of getting this official business on its feet. But this is where we start, by asking amazing donors like you to chip in what you can to help us make this a reality.

As we currently stand it will take about 600.00 to file and register everything we need to to get up and running through the State of Washington. It will cost additional funding to get together start up supplies together so that we have items for our shows and events throughout the year without relying on outside help.

Our total start up goal is 2500.00. A very very lofty goal especially in the times that we are living but I am sure that we can hit it if we work together. Once reached, the Olympus show will be registered under the banner of The Force of Hephaestus dba A Night On Olympus.

How can you donate? Hit that link below to help us start the march towards our goal.  All donations will have a thank you letter written along with a proof of payment so that you can track how much you have donated to our cause.

Its not going to be easy, but I think that the hard work of getting this off the ground will pay off down the road with an annual extravaganza that will be able to help countless people in need. We know that this will be a campaign of $1, $2, $5, $10 donations, but EVERYTHING truly helps us get off the ground. Any funds raised over the 2500.00 goal will go straight into the Olympus General Donation Fund for future use.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me and I would be happy to answer any questions that you may have. 

Thank you for taking the time to read, for considering donating, and for always supporting us through good times and bad. Our hope is that this show will become an annual staple that people around the country can look forward to.

Warmest Regards,

Robert Wayne Irwin Jr
