Friends of The Power and The Honor Foundation Reception

Friends, Food & Art

We had an amazing time at last year’s Power-Con where we were able to share some incredible artwork, and more importantly, were able to meet and talk to other fans.

We are pleased to announce the first annual Friends of The Power and The Honor Foundation Reception. The reception will be held on Saturday September 22, 2012 starting at 5:30pm in Suites 9 & 11 at the Torrance Marriott South Bay, 3635 Fashion Way, Torrance, California 90503.  We have the room until 1:00am so be prepared to relax, eat, and enjoy some time with friends.

As many of last year’s Power-Con attendees chose to either eat at the hotel’s bar or venture outside the hotel for dinner, we thought it would be nice to have a friendly on-site reception that allowed people to remain at the event hotel.

The Foundation will be giving FREE space to collectors to display art, toys, and merchandise in the room. Expect some great He-Man AND She-Ra artwork showcased for your enjoyment, including art from the personal collections of Mark Taylor, Josh Van Pelt, Emiliano Santalucia, James Eatock, James Sawyer, Mike Zolotorow, Chuck Bowles, and Lee Clevenger. Contact us if you have something in your collection that you would like to display!

For your $35 donation you will gain access to this private event and receive an assortment of finger foods as well as refreshments. The tentative menu includes chicken fingers, flatbread pizza, buffalo wings, and sandwiches & wraps. The room only holds 80 guests so be sure to secure your spot today!

The Power and The Honor Foundation is pleased to announce that we are now a federally recognized 501(c)3 organization

August 13, 2012:

The Power and The Honor Foundation is officially a non-profit 501(c)3 public charity organization and donations and contributions are now tax-deductible.

The IRS has applied our 501(c)3 status retroactively to our original filing date last year, so it is effective as of May 26, 2011.  The IRS allows you to refile or amend your taxes for the last two years if needed. We have kept detailed records, and if you made a donation after our official filing date, you are welcome to contact us for a copy of a tax-deductible donation receipt.

501(c)3 public charity status is something we have been working towards for the past year. The formation of the Foundation, the drafting of bylaws, and the submitting, clarifying, and resubmitting of paperwork has been a long and intricate process; one which we hope will help us to better serve the fans of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe and She-Ra Princess of Power.

Our mission remains the same: To collect, archive, preserve, and educate the public about the creative origins of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe and She-Ra Princess of Power. Attaining tax-exempt status is critical to our mission and to our development into a sustainable organization.

Our continued operation relies heavily upon contributions made by other fans. You can help by being involved with the Foundation, by telling us what you’d like to see us improve, by attending events where we get to share artwork with the public, and by contributing to The Power and The Honor Foundation, either by donating toys and artwork or through cash donations- which are now all tax deductible!

Please consider making a contribution today to help preserve the art and history of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe and She-Ra Princess of Power.  Please visit www.powerandhonor.org for more information.

In the coming weeks, we will begin working on a many new projects that will require volunteers.  We will begin building databases, creating archives, and organizing photographs.  If you would like to be considered for one of our volunteer roles please contact us at info@powerandhonor.org.
