Well, we’re halfway there. (Halfway to Chamber Day, that is.) And wouldn’t it be grand if we could double where we are in the Challenge as well?

Don’t forget that the Chamber Challenge is very valuable (no pun intended) to our Chamber Day efforts because these are not only unrestricted funds, but they’re funds from which there are no expenses like t-shirts or dinners associated with getting the donation. (We do purchase plaques for the Gold and Silver donors but that’s a fairly small expense.) But the point is that the Challenge funds in the past have accounted for 20-25% of the net from the event so they’re vitally important.

And while we appreciate donations of every level, we always like to take time in these updates to specifically acknowledge our new Gold and Silver donors.

This time around we start off with Robert Wagner (the Reef Seekers diver, not the actor) who is again this year supporting our Chamber with a generous $1000 donation.

On the Silver level, we extend our thanks to Tobin George and Deep Sea Supply (they’re also got a table at Chamber Evening) as well as Jim Krasne, another Reef Seekers diver who chooses to go the extra mile to support our Chamber.

How about you? Who’s next?? Who will help push us past $21,000???
