(Thought you were done with these, didn't you????)


Wow!!! What a finish!!! We ended up at $64,640, which is a 20% increase over the 2014 Challenge. Remarkable.

We are led in our final summary by a trio of Silver donors: The "If We Ever" Foundation (who handed us a check at Chamber Eve), Ethan Bush, and Dave Carver of the L.A. County Sheriff's Department. Plus a number of Bronze level an under-Bronze donations as well.

The Challenge is a hugely important part of the success of Chamber Day, accounting for roughly 55% of the final tally. So we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your contributions.
