Happy Earth Day!!! And Happy Chamber Challenge Update Day!!! (Yeah, we know its not a real thing.) But we just passed $66,000 so its a happy day here in Chamber Challenge-Land.

Well start off by announcing that again this year, D.A.N. (Divers Alert Network) has awarded us a $2,500 grant to continue the good work at our Chamber. This is especially appropriate since D.A.N.s primary mission is that of furthering diver safety, and what better way to do it than to support our Chamber? We also welcome a $500 Silver contribution from Gary King, done in the memory of our good friend (and Chamber supporter) Patrick Smith.

Were heading into crunch time but were also faced with a unique opportunity: Since we started doing the Challenge many moons ago, weve never cracked $75,000 in Challenge donations. But, with where we are now and looking at those who gave last ear but who have yet to give this year, weve got a shot at a new record amount. So . . .

Who will help us get there? The next threshold is $70,000. Go to our donation page ( CHAMBER DAY 2019 DONATION PAGE) and add your name to those below who have already contributed. Who's next??? Whos going to help us set a new record???
