We are about ten days out from Chamber Day 2018 and we are tantalizingly close to $55,000 with the Chamber Challenge!!! Who will push us over that hump???

We’re led this go-round by a number of donations in memory of Patrick Smith, including a Silver-level one from Gary & Deanne King. We’ve also got a Silver-level donation from Rex Uber, a longtime supporter of our Chamber at this donation level.

Our Chamber relies on direct financial support from the diving community it serves for roughly 50% of the annual budget. And there’s no better way to show your support than with a donation to the Chamber Challenge, which goes directly into the Chamber’s account. We’re not doing badly with the Challenge but we could be doing better.

So who’s next? Who’s going to push us past that $55K benchmark? Here’s the direct donation link: https://dornsife.usc.edu/cf/chamberday/payment.cfm along with our updated list of Chamber Challenge donors:
