We're getting closer!!!!!!

Closer not only to Chamber Day and Chamber Evening (May 2 . . . just in case it had somehow passed your notice) but also closer to cracking $20,000 on the Michael Kane $10K Chamber Challenge.

WHO WILL STEP FORWARD AND PUT US OVER $20,000????????? You all know this is for a worthy cause. What does it take to get your COMMITTED to this event?

We had an interesting comment from a donor the other day. He said he never paid much attention tot Chamber Day because he "knew" he'd never need to go into a Chamber. But then he came up from a seemingly routine dive a month ago and was very scared to realize that his right hand was numb. Needless to say, this was a wake-up call. And luckily for him, the numbness was being caused by a new-not-trimmed-back-enough wrist seal on his drysuit. But . . .

What's YOUR excuse for not getting involved? Because whatever it is, it's bogus. While you can make a statistical argument that the chances of YOU ever needing the Chamber are slim, the reality of diving in Southern California is that within the next 12 months, someone YOU know will need to be treated in our Chamber.

YOUR donation makes a difference. YOUR support helps keep the Chamber going. YOUR indifference does not bode well to keep this vital safety net for Southern California divers healthy.

We are less than a week away from Chamber Day. It's time to get off the fence. Give us a call at 310/652-4990, or e-mail us at "" and make your donation. You DO make a difference and we can't do it without you.
