I am pleased to report that we've made it past $40,000. I am dismayed to report that it took us NINE days to get here from $35,000. This is not the time to slow down. This is the time pick up the pace. And we hope your name (and donation) will join these good folks to help keep our Chamber strong.

We start with a SECOND donation from the Ocean Institute folks and specifically aimed at purchasing one of the BIBS masks (of 10) that we need. 1 down, 9 to go.

We also welcome Pacific Wilderness to the list of $1,000 (Gold) sponsors, a place they tend to occupy each year. Its always great when dive shops step up and show their support with a cash contribution.

Plus we've got a number of people joining at the Poster level ($250) as well as Bronze ($100-199) and it all goes to show how, when you add up the big, the medium, and even the small donations, good things happens and lots of money can be raised. So who's willing to add their name to the list? Can you sponsor a BIBS mask? Perhaps youd like a poster?
