Perhaps I spoke too quickly yesterday . . .

Woo-hoo!!! We made it past $25,000 overnight. It also shows how nice it is to get some of the larger donations as they really help jump us forward.

We start with a Gold-level $1,000 donation from Hollywood Divers. (They also sponsor a Ch-Eve table which they‘ve already filled.) They’re a good example of the importance of dive shops pitching in and helping to support our Chamber as it’s important for them to keep it there for their divers. They are joined by the Craig & Leesa Walker Foundation who this year move up to Gold (they had previously been Silver) and continue to support the good work done by our Chamber.

And speaking of Silver, we also are happy to include Jim Krasne on the list at that level. Jim no longer dives but understands how vital our Chamber is for those who still do and is happy to continue to support the cause.

How about you? Whether it’s $1,000, $500, $100 or any amount that works for your budget, these Challenge donations play a huge role in the success of Chamber Day. Our next benchmark will be $30K. So whaddya say? Who's going keep us going?
