What a nice weekend it's turned out to be because we can announce a large donation that puts us over $32,000!!!

Our friends at the Ocean Institute in Dana Point (in conjunction with one of their donors) have once again joined the growing list of Chamber supporters with a very generous $7,000 Platinum level donation. The Ocean Institute is all about teaching kids all kinds of things about the ocean, one of which is obviously the need to have a safety net for divers. They will also have two tables at Chamber Evening as another way of teaching their students all about what the ocean has to offer. We appreciate the continued support and are quite happy to be part of their learning process.

We hope you share their commitment to education about the ocean. In terms of our Chamber, we're not only there for emergencies, but your contributions over the years have helped us expand our outreach programs where we go out and talk about various aspects of diving to interested groups. The goal here is prevention through education because we've always felt that better-informed divers make better decisions that can help them avoid a trip to the Chamber. Your contributions help us keep that going.

Go to our website (www.chamberday.org) and make an on-line donation. Help push us towards our next waypoint of $35,000? Who's next???
