Now that tax time is past, how about thinking about giving some money to the Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber instead of to Uncle Sam?

We're happy to report to you that the Chamber Challenge (a major part of Chamber Day/Eve) is now past $9000 . . . and climbing. But we can't do it without your help.

These donations, along with what will be rasied through the daytime and evening events, help keep the Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber on solid financial footing. And with all the talk of budget crisis and government cutbacks, do we really want to put our Chamber in a precarious position? In a perfect world, we wouldn't need to resort to fund-raisers for such a vital safety net for divers but . . . the world's NOT perfect and so here we are again.

We've got three weeks until Chamber Day/Eve (May 7) and there's time to add your name to the list of concerned divers willing to step forward and make a difference.

So . . . WHO'S NEXT???
