We're inching towards $25,000 . . .

We're led this time by a pair of longtime Chamber supporters. The first are the boys & girls at Hollywood Divers who again come through at the Gold level. They are also sponsoring a Chamber Evening table as well as a boat (the Westerly). They're a great example of how this event thrives through the active participation of stores and clubs.

At the Silver ($500) level, we've got two examples of corporate matching grants being put to good use. The first is Cynthia Yonker (who contributed a week or two ago but somehow got left off of our list) and she gets a match from E&J Gallo (yes, THAT Gallo). And then there's Ethan Bush, also with a $500 donation which gets matched by a generous mouse (aka The Walt Disney Company). And also in this group (but without a corporate match - but we still appreciate the donation) is longtime contributor Jeanne Sleeper.

This all works best when everyone pitches in. So whether you do it on your own or with the aid of a corporate matching grant, please give what you can so we can hit our goals for this event. We literally can't do it without you.

We're only $1,605 away from $25,000. Who will help get us push past that???
