Olympic Hot Tub Honors Its Company Founders with October 1-31 Fundraising Event
SEATTLE WA – Olympic Hot Tub hosts its annual Founder’s Event from October 1 to 31, 2018 to honor company founders Alice Cunningham and Blair Osborn. Olympic Hot Tub will donate a portion of each Hot Spring Spa, Finnleo Sauna, Freeflow Spa and Covana Automated Gazebo sold in the month of October. Don Riling, president of Olympic Hot Tub, launched the annual Founder’s Event as a way to give back to the community his company has been a part of for over forty years. Each year Olympic Hot Tub selects a beneficiary that supports area organizations that serve those struggling with hunger and homelessness. This year’s recipient, Path with Art transforms the lives of people recovering from homelessness, addiction, and other trauma through creative engagement.
Holly Jacobson, Executive Director from Path with Art explains, “Our work serving people recovering from homelessness, addiction, and other trauma harnesses the power of creative engagement as a bridge to community and a path to stability. Every penny donated to support our programs changes not just lives –but the communities in which we live. We are truly grateful to Don Riling and Olympic Hot Tub for their financial contributions and support of our organization. It will go a long way.”
Don Riling has set this year’s donation goal at $15,000. He understands the value of having a creative outlet and is committed to giving back to the community where he does business. Don encourages others to donate directly to Path with Art this month. Interested parties may visit www.pathwithart.org/donate for more information on what and how to donate.
