We’re now roughly 24 hours away from the culmination of Chamber Day 2018 and we are sooooo close to $65,000!!! You guys continually amaze us.

We start this one with amazing dual Gold contributions from the Scuba.com family. The first is $1,000 in the name of Scuba.com and it’s always nice when you see this type of local support from a business that exists not only on-line, but also on a national level. But the second part of that is a donation from Melinda Herndon is her name (and that of the Herndon family) for another $1,000. We are very grateful for both of these.

We’re also grateful for a $1,000 donation from the Roddenberry Foundation, a longtime supporter of our Chamber at the Gold level. Space may have been “the final frontier” but diving (and the perils that go with it that our Chamber deals with) is a frontier also to be supported and explored.

We also need to correct a previous listing of a Silver donation which should have read as being from the Jeremy & Marlo Wolf Family Foundation. And we want to acknowledge a new Silver-level donation from John Cook.

It’s literally the home stretch but we can still use the help. There’s no such thing as “too much” support. If you’re waiting until the last minute, this would be that.
