One week to go and we keep plugging along, thanks to you, setting a new Challenge record every day. Let’s not stop.

The latest folks to power us ahead are the collective members of the San Gabriel Valley Scuba Club who all got together and ponied up a total of $1,025 for a Gold-level sponsorship. They are just another example of a dive club or dive store understanding the need for our Chamber to stand at the ready 24/7/365.

We also have a Silver-level donor and it’s one in memory of someone. This one comes from longtime Chamber supporter Bill Holzer in memory of his late wife Corinne. And Bill’s donation serves as a reminder for you to scroll down through the list of contributors at each level and see how many are in memory of (deceased) or in honor of (living) an individual.

We’ve got a week to go and new heights to reach. But we can only get there when you make the conscious decision that supporting our Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber is something that’s important and essential for your diving experience in Southern California. Time is running out. Here’s the direct link to the donation page. We’d love to have your name join the others below before May 5: https://usc.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_dp3rzL7cVCFp1rM.
