I'm a bit fan of round numbers. So when I saw that we were at $15,685 for the Jon Hardy Chamber Challenge, I knew I had to figure out some way to move us off that number. And my answer came from Marilyn Lawrence, who has been my teaching assistant for the last 21 years, but more importantly is the owner of a string of maternity stores called Mom's the Word. And (after a little bit of arm twisting, pleading, begging, and whining) Marilyn agreed to donate $315 to the Challenge to bring us to an even $16,000.

So we thank Marilyn (and the other new contributors - as well as the previous ones) for bring us to this lofty height. There's still time for YOU to get involved, though. You can either call us at 310/652-4990 or make a donation through the website at ""

So . . . WHO'S NEXT?????
