I have a question about expenses annual charitable

Customer Question

Hi, I have a question about expenses for an annual charitable production my wife and I do every year. Seems this is not for profit of any kind, are any of the expenses deductible like equipment purchases, maintenance of current equipment and power usage during the shows? It all started out as my personal hobby several years ago but it has grown to be an expected local community charity event.
