Budd inlet race

How do I go about getting a sponsored race together for the Olympia area? I was thinking Olympia to Boston Harbor and back, approx. 12-14 miles. Do I need a club backing or just ACA? I thought this would be a great way to bring attention to OC paddling in the South Sound area. Plus its a great course.
