Some days you just don't want to open up the mail because it's just bills, bills, bills. And then other days . . . you get a pleasant surprise.

Yesterday was one of those (good) days as we received yet another contribution to the Jon Hardy Chamber Challenge. This one comes jointly from Ron & Sue Bangasser in the amount of $1000. Ron & Sue are well-known within the SoCal diving community going back many years and Sue is an inductee into the Women Diver's Hall of Fame. Not surprisingly, they knew and worked with Jon Hardy for many years and share his passion for diving and safety. And their donation pushed us past $23,000 - which makes this the most successful challenge we've ever done.

We've still got room for more stragglers if you're out there. Who's next????
