Each year the diving community also raises extra funds during Chmaber Day through the Chamber Challenge. These are unrestricted funds are vital to the operation of our Chamber. Simply put, you make a donation of whatever level is good for you, and then “Challenge” your friends and associates to match you.

Although contributions of any size are welcome, we have a tiered level of donations as follows:
Gold - $1,000
Silver - $500
Bronze - $100

All Gold donors will receive special recognition from our Chamber for their donation. Contributions can come from individuals, clubs, stores, boats, publications, etc., etc. If the company you work for has a matching grant program, that will also be appreciated.

Donations can either be made by e-mail to or by calling Reef Seekers Dive Co., the co-ordinating store, at 310/652-4990 or through the secure server at “”. Cash, check, or credit card will be just fine and dandy but please make a contribution.

Here are the people who are getting us started. It's a great mix of individuals (Mike & Pat Emmerman, Karl Huggins, Don Lake, Jim Kranse, Scott Cox, Jeanne Sleeper, Frank O’Donnell, Hal Frankl, Fran & George Ollweiler, and Sue Ollweiler) and stores (Reef Seekers and Ocean Adventures so far) to get us underway.

One of the gratifying things about this event overall, is that it's a great opportunity for the entire SoCal dive community to put aside the petty bickering that sometimes divides us, and pull together for the greater good of the community as a whole.

We appreciate those who have already joined in supporting our Chamber and we look forward to adding many names to the list. So . . . who's next????
