CHALLENGE PASSES $14,000
We’ve got exactly one week to go and we’ve just squeaked over $14,000 ($14,085 to be exact).
And this comes on the heels of news that since we did the last update (roughly 24 hours ago) THREE divers have been treated for suspected decompression illness. So if you’re sitting there thinking, “This never happens,” or “We don’t really need to have a Chamber available to us all the time” you’d be sadly mistaken.
An important factor in successful treatment is getting you to a Chamber as quickly as possible. The Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber is the ONLY facility in the area that is on call 24 hours a day, every day of the week, every week of the year AND is strictly dedicated to the treatment of diving injuries. Our Chamber serves as a vital safety net for the rare occasion when something goes wrong post-dive. And while the vast majority of people reading this will never need the services of our Chamber, for those few who will, it serves a vital function.
New donors this round include Don Lake ($500), Scuba Schools of America (Woodland Hills), Clara Galvan (who many of you know as the woman who books the boats for Sport Chalet), and Sven & Nancy Grenander.
Sven & Nancy, who both work at JPL on the Mars rovers, have a challenge for the rest of you “rocket scientists” out there. They can’t attend the event this year so instead have put $250 towards the Challenge and challenge the rest of you to meet or beat their donation, and join them in supporting our Chamber. You can do that with a simple phone call to us at 310/652-4990 or by going to our secure server on our website. But however you do it, support our Catalina Chamber. Time is running out.
So . . . WHO'S NEXT???????
