CHAMBER CHALLENGE 2011 - UPDATE #11 - $46,648 (posted 4/30 - last updated 4/25)

We've passed $46,000 . . .

And now we're getting down to crunch time as we've got less than a week to go. The big question: Can we pass $50,000??? (The answer is "yes" but only with the collective help of everyone who reads this e-mail.)

We start off by announcing a brand new Gold sponsor - the Catalina Express. They understand the important connection between the Chamber and the dive community and they’re willing to step in and help out.

We also welcome back two returning Silvers sponsors, Rex Uber and Jim Krasne. Interestingly, in separate conversations with each of them, they both say they don't dive as much as they'd like to (or used to) but that they still understand how vital their support of the Chamber is to the diving community of which they’re still part.

So how about you? How about $100, $500, or even $1000??? So who's next??? Who will help push us past $47,000?
