|CHAMBER CHALLENGE 2021 - UPDATE #14 $83,025 (as of 4/15 @ Noon)|

We made it past $80,000 and are closing in on a new record for the Challenge!!!
The biggest part of the push comes from Antelope Valley Desert Divers (I’m always afraid I’ll call them “Antelope Valley Dessert Divers”). Their club is very active in supporting many worthwhile causes and they have been making a Platinum-level $5,000 Challenge donation for a number of years now. This year, a number of their Board members (who authorize the donation) are in Belize and actually joined us via Zoom to help make the donation official. But the club’s effort is somewhat bittersweet this year, as it’s being made in the memory of their past president Mike Orlando, who passed unexpectedly last fall (non-COVID). Mike was the driving force behind many of the club’s philanthropic endeavors as well as the guy who got them to go from $500 to $1,000 to $5,000 on their annual Challenge donations. We’re very happy to have their continued support but will miss Mike’s participation.
We’ve also got a Gold-level $1,000 donation from D.A.N., the Divers Alert Network. D.A.N. not only is there for divers, but also supports chambers all over the world with special grants, and we qualify again this year.
And covering the third of our major donation levels in this update, we want to thank Rex Uber, a longtime diver and supporter of our Chamber, with his annual $500 contribution.
We’ve now got less than three weeks to go and we are tantalizingly close to eclipsing the record set last year. We can only do that with YOUR support and, as time is drawing short, we hope you’ll go to our website, and give our Chamber the support it so richly deserves.
