We made it past $60,000!!!

And a very generous (and unanticipated) donation/grant of $2,500 from the Divers Alert Network (aka D.A.N.) is what leads the way. Obviously, the folks at D.A.N. understand the value of a recompression chamber, but it’s especially gratifying and nice to see that they recognize the special importance of our Chamber.

We also have in this go-round longtime Chamber supporters Norman & Marilyn Deatherage who come in as they do every year, at the Silver level ($500).

As I write this, we’re a bit over 48 hours from the finish line but there’s still time for a final push. Can you help us do it? Is there any chance we could actually hit $65,000??? Our fate is in your hands.

So who’s next???? Here’s the direct donation link: https://dornsife.usc.edu/cf/chamberday/payment.cfm along with our updated list of Chamber Challenge donors:
