We’ve cracked $90,000!!! Never in our wildest dreams did we think back in March when we started, that seven weeks later we’d be able to say that about the Challenge.

We start this update off with a Silver-level donation from returning supporter Kathy Kalohi. And she’s backed up by a number of smaller donations. And these all really underscore the point that while we certainly appreciate the very large donations, those $100 and $500 donations (and other amounts) really keep us chugging along.

We’re just barely inside of two weeks to go but your Chamber still needs your support. As we’ve mentioned, not only does Chamber Day provide over half of the annual funding for our Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber, but this year we all have to make up for lost class revenues. And we know any of you are dealing pandemic-related economic issues so whatever you can squeeze out of your budget we’re quite happy to accept into ours.

So who’s next? Who will keep us going? Can we make it into six figures????Here’s the direct link to the donation page. There’s room to add your name to our list: https://usc.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_dp3rzL7cVCFp1rM .
