The first accounting last night at Chamber Evening indicated that Chamber Day 2009 raised $115,000 to support the USC Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber! This is a very impressive figure, especially in the current economic environment.

One reason Chamber Day works is because of the wide participation of the Divers, Dive Boats, Dive Shops, Dive Clubs, Equipment Manufacturers, Publishers, and other Diving (and Non-Diving) Related Organizations. The other reason it works is because of the time and effort our Chamber Day Steering Committee puts in planning and organizing over the five months leading up to the event. Members of the Chamber Day Steering Committee this year included: Rusty Berry, Paul Dimeo, Clara Galvan, Linda Gorman, Roy Houston, Debbie Karimoto, Laurie Kasper, Ken Kurtis (chair), Steve Ladd, Jerry Lewis, Alberto Mantovani, Jerry Nickelsberg, Annette Rocha, Mark Tulin, and Tom Wetzel.

And we are not done yet. Since some of the Chamber Day fleet of dive boats did not run yesterday because of weather concerns, we will be working with them to set up an alternate date for the dives and tour of the Chamber. If you were scheduled on one of these boats, we will be in contact with you to let you know what the plans are (we kept back 1/3 of the raffle prizes for you).

Once again, thank you all for your support!!!

Karl Huggins Director, USC Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber
