While we really do appreciate each and every donation we get, large and small, it's also really nice when we make big jumps in one fell swoop. And that's what we have now. We are pleased to say that in the space of 12 hours, and with a single donation that comes with a matching grant, we've jumped past $51,000!!!

Our benefactor is regular Chamber supporter Scott Bruce with a very generous $3,000 donation. Scott works for Goggle and their policy is that they'll match Scott dollar-for-dollar. (I think $3K is their max.) So Scott's donation really becomes a $6,000 one to help keep our Chamber going.

But whether it's $6,000 or $6, every donation helps. And as we can see the finish line in sight, we hope you'll hop on board the Challenge train and push us onward. Next stop is $55,000. Who will help get us there????
