Hot tub retailer Olympic Hot Tubs kicked off its sixth annual Founders Event throughout the month of October. The event honors company founders Alice Cunningham and Blair Osborn, and their legacy of giving. This year, Olympic Hot Tub raised funds for three organizations that provide emergency and/or affordable long-term housing for those in need: Compass Housing Alliance serving the Greater Puget Sound region; Serenity House of Clallam County; and Housing Hope of Everett, serving Snohomish County.
“Alice and Blair, both brilliant businesspeople, are passionate about a number of worthwhile causes,” says Don Riling, Olympic Hot Tub president. “They share a concern about the ever-growing plight of hunger and homelessness in our region, and they recognize the importance of giving back. We are so pleased to help Compass Housing Alliance, Serenity House and Housing Hope in their missions to empower struggling individuals and families to end the cycle of homelessness.”
Olympic Hot Tubs has pledged to donate a portion of each Hot Spring Spa, Vita Swim Spa, Freeflow Spa and Covana Automated Gazebo sale toward the Founder’s Event goal of $18,000. According to the company, this donation to Compass Housing Alliance, Serenity House of Clallam County and Housing Hope will go directly to those providing critical housing and support services, and helping those in need build better lives.
Olympic encourages community members to donate directly to Compass Housing Alliance, Serenity House of Clallam County and Housing Hope, or a local charity of their choice. “Our company has always been focused on the health and wellness of our customers — one of the reasons we’ve adopted Better You…Better Life as Olympic’s mantra,” Riling says. “We think everyone, regardless of their situation in life, deserves a chance for change.”
