Two days to go to Chamber Day (and the end of these updates . . .)

Right now (Monday at 1:00PM), we’re at $15,550. And now we’ve only got two days to go. So we REALLY need your help if we’re to beat last year’s overall take.

As you may or may hot know, Chamber Day/Eve provides well over half of the annual funding needed to run the Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber. And while we’re not going to claim that the Chamber will go away if you don’t give something right now, the reality is that a financially healthy Chamber benefits all of the diving community.

It’s also important to remember that our Chamber is the ONLY one that’s strictly dedicated to treating diving injuries and does so on a 24/7/365 (366 this year - with no extra charge for the additional day) basis. So we can really use your help and your donation.

New donors this round include the Ocean Institute ($500), Taco Bell ($250), David Caren ($125), and Robert Mosqueda ($100). We’ve got room for your name too when you call us with your donation at 310/652-4990 or when you donate through the secure server on our website. But however you do it, support our Catalina Chamber. Time is running out.

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