While our update yesterday illustrated the power of individual contributions, the update today illustrates the power of an organization banding their individual members together to make a powerful impact.

Hat's off to Eco Dive Center in Culver City who Tuesday night handed Karl Huggins a check for $6,460 . . . and they say they've STILL collecting funds.

Eco decided this year that, instead of taking tables at Ch-Eve, they would concentrate their efforts on getting their customers to collectively donate to our Chamber. They've run some promotions and giveaways and taken some straight donations and have come up with this impressive sum, which pushes us over $15,000 total!!!

But their efforts in mobilizing their customer base show how important it is for stores and clubs to get behind this effort to raise funds for our Chamber. Those of you who are in charge of such institutions have a closer relationship with your customer/member base than anyone else in this industry does. And if something like supporting our Chamber is important to you, and you tell your customer base how important it is, they'll join you in that support.

So we hope many of you will follow the example of Eco Dive Center (if you haven't started doing so already) by asking your folks to pitch in and support our Chamber. So who’s next? Who will help get us closer to $20,000?
