Perhaps Friday the 13th is really our lucky day because it's been a busy week and I'm delighted to tell you that we've passed $25,000 in the Challenge!!!

We start off with a generous $1000 Gold sponsor pledge from longtime supporter Robert Wagner. This is not the actor but one of our reef seekers divers who has for years supported our Chamber, even though he doesn't do much cold-water diving anymore. but Robert understands that our Chamber needs to be there to help his friends who do still dive SoCal and he's willing to pony up for that reason.

We've also got a pair of new $500 Silver sponsors in the form of Hollywoodivers and Rebecca Jackrel. Both have been longtime supporters of our Chamber, Hollywoodivers as a very active LA-based dive shop and Rebecca from her home in San Francisco. And they go to show what a geographically diverse group we are.

We also got a number of $100 donors, including three that are tagged in memory of Roger Hess, founder of Charisma Charters and "father" of Chamber Day (it was his idea back in 1989).

And it all goes to show how all donations, or any amount, help keep our Chamber strong. Can we make Friday the 13th our lucky day? Will YOU help? Go to the website (www.chamberday.org) and make an on-line donation. Help push us towards our next waypoint of $30,000? Who's next???
