My oh my!!!! When I was doing Top 40 radio, the phrase was “And the hits just keep on coming!” For the Challenge, I guess I’ll have to modify that to be “And the Platinum Donors just keep on coming!!!”

We are quite please to share with you that we’ve shot past $30,000, largely on the strength of a $5,000 (Platinum) donation from our fiends at Galileo Capri down in Orange County. They’ve been longtime supporters of our Chamber and understand the need to keep it available 24/7/365 to be there when diving things go wrong.

We are exactly four weeks away from Chamber Day 2018 and while we’re on a good pace (in fact, an amazingly good pace) with the Challenge right now, a lot of the big leaps lately have been from large donations. And while they really help out, so do all the smaller ones. It is only when we ALL band together - with donations of all sizes - that we can ensure that our Chamber will stay on firm financial footing for another year.

So whether you’re an individual a business, a club, or whatever, every dollar counts. And we’d like to count your next. The direct donation page is https://dornsife.usc.edu/cf/chamberday/payment.cfm. Here’s our updated honor roll of Challenge donors as of today:
