In 1989, Chamber Day was created as a way of providing more secure funding for our Chamber. And since that time, we've come back to you annually to ask you to support your Chamber. We hope you'll never need it, but if you do, you'll be glad it's there.

A key component of our fund-raising efforts, especially the past few years, has been the Chamber Challenge. We “challenge” you to give a straight donation to our Chamber, and we hope you will then turn around and challenge your friends and dive buddies to match your generosity. And I am amazed and delighted to announce that we've passed $5,000 already!!!

We start off with a trio of Gold donors in the form of Pacific Wilderness, Billy Chambers, and John Delaney. Pacific Wilderness every year is one of the first through the door with their donation and we appreciate the continued support. Billy is a “regular” diver, just like many of you, but realizes how important having our Chamber available 24/7/365 is. And John is a longtime supporter of this effort.

We also have a trio of Silver donors, from Mike Couffer who also has a passion for Black Sea Bass, Don Lake who is a longtime regular supporter of this cause, and the first of what we think will be many donations in memory of longtime Chamber Committee member and outstanding instructor Tom Wetzel (this first one’s from Chamber Director Karl Huggins).

You'll also note that we have a number of Bronze donors at the $100 level as well, and that's really the engine that keeps this Challenge purring.

But it's early in the game and everything helps. We’re gearing up for March Madness, so about how about a little Chamber Challenge madness to match? Who's next? Who will help push us towards $10,000?
