CHAMBER CHALLENGE 2010 - UPDATE #4 - $12,025 (posted 3/27/10 - last updated 3/24/10)

Wow!!! We surged past $12,000!!!

Last update, we showed how a few large contributors can leap-frog our total ahead. This time, we take the same general theme with $100 donations.

But we start by saluting another Silver sponsor. That would be our good friends the Shecklers, better known as California Diving News & The Scuba Show. They not only (once again) support our Chamber through their Challenge donation, but also (again) will be attending Chamber Evening.

We should also in this update point out the value or corporate matching contributions. Angi Burkard made a $200 Challenge donation and also got $25 dollars in daytime raffle tickets. Her firm (Conoco-Phillips) will match that total donation dollar-for-dollar. So Angi's $225 becomes $450. So see if your company has some sort of a matching grant policy in place because it's a way for you to double the value of your donation to our Chamber.

But this update really does underscore how important all those $100 pledges are because they add up to help us forge ahead in our overall total and help solidify our goal of keeping our Chamber financially sounds.

So whether it's $100, $500, $1000, or more . . .who’s next? Who will help push us past $13,000?
