The upward trend continues as we shoot past $25,000!!! This is shaping up as a potentially huge Challenge year and hopefully this trend continues until May 2.

For this go-round, we are led by an anonymous $5,000 Platinum contribution honoring the service and memory of Dr. Jeff Sispey who served for so many years as the medical director for our Chamber. Dr. Sipsey was not a diver himself (and sort of thought we were crazy to do it) but was passionate about making sure that if we got injured, we would get the best medical care and treatment possible.

We’ve also got a Silver level $500 contribution from Chamber Day Committee member Susy Horowitz, who also made a second donation in memory of Tim Burke from the Great Escape. In fact, if you look closely at some of the other new Bronze-level donors, you’ll see a number of “In honor of” or “In memory of.” So remember that if there’s someone you’d like to recognize with your donation, that’s a great way to do it.

As we look ahead, the next bridge to cross is $30,000 (and we only need to $3,660 to get there). Who’s next??? The link to the direct donation page is https://dornsife.usc.edu/cf/chamberday/payment.cfm. Here’s our updated honor roll of Challenge donors:
