Every year, as we get closer and closer to the event, the pace picks up. This year looks like it will be no different. (And that’s a good thing.)

The Challenge is going gangbusters, the Dutchman is doing OK, and the Evening isn’t bad but could be better (but it’s understandable given the nature of things), but overall we’re moving along. The good news is that you’ve only got to put up with my updates for another five days. The bad news is that when we get inside a week as we are now, you’re going to be getting a lot of them.

But in all seriousness, we’re now into crunch time. For those of you who like to wait until the last minute, that minute is here. And you don’t want to wait too long and miss out.

Specifically, that refers to the raffle. (A reminder will closely follow this update.) If you want extra raffle tickets, the deadline is this Saturday (tomorrow) at 6PM PDT. All raffle ticket requests must go to chamberday@aol.com. Anyone can buy up to 35 tickets ($50). If you’re on the Dutchman, your limit is 50 tickets ($75). And if you’re doing the Evening, your limit is 75 tickets ($100). So don’t let this deadline pass you by.

We are also finalizing plans for our live-stream of the event program Wednesday night. It looks like we’ll set it up as a Zoom Webinar that will also simultaneously stream to FaceBook Live. So we should have more details and links for you on Monday.

In the meantime, we keep chugging along and are hoping to hear from you if we haven’t already. Get involved with one or more aspects of Chamber Day 2020. The direct link to our sign-up page is: https://dornsife.usc.edu/chamberday/signup-link/.
