YIKES!!!! (And a GOOD “Yikes” at that.) We’ve powered past $65,000!!!
A good portion of that comes from an anonymous donation in memory of Dr. Jeff Sipsey. Dr. Sipsey was NOT a diver. But he was an avid hyperbaric guy. Dr. Sipsey started with the Chamber in 1976, during his residency at LAC+USC Department of Emergency Medicine, and eventually moved into the Chamber's Medical Director position until his retirement in 2014. Armed with a truly dry sense of humor he would sometimes quip, "I got the position because I was willing to leave a date at dinner or a movie." He had a wonderful bedside manner and could put an injured patient at ease within moments of their meeting. Even though he wasn’t certified, Dr. Sipsey had more "dive" time, from examination dives he did in the Chamber, than many of the patients he treated. He is missed and we appreciate this donation in his memory.
We also welcome back Louis Weisberg to the roll call of Challenge donors. Lou first got certified (by me) back in 1982 and has remained an occasional but enthusiastic diver since then as well as a regular (and also enthusiastic) Chamber supporter and donor.
We’re roughly at the halfway point in our annual fund-raising and although the Challenge is doing quite well so far, this is NOT the time to relax and think, “They’ve got this covered.” As we’ve mentioned in previous updates, COVID did not change our expenses since we remained at the ready 24/7/365 this past year, and we also have to replace lost class/training income since we weren’t able to conduct those.
You donations matter. So who’s next??? Click on this link and show us your support for our Chamber: https://usc.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_dp3rzL7cVCFp1rM .
