Simply amazing and beyond our wildest dreams. We are now scaling new heights. Dare we think we can hit $120K?? We can with your help. Here are the latest Chamber believers who have pushed us ahead.

We start with a longtime supporter of our Chamber (and also a Chamber Eve table sponsor), the South Orange County Dive Club, aka SOCDC. They always come through for us and, should the need ever arise, we will be there to come through for them.

Today also underscores the importance of those $100 contributions. There’s a slew of them as you can see below. And much as we appreciate the larger donors, the reality is that most of the donations are $100-500 and when those are all combined, they exert great power and really go a long way to helping the cause.

We’ve still got about 100 people who donated last year who we haven’t heard from this year and, if you’re on that list, we still hope that you’ll pitch in. Your donations really DO make a difference. Here’s the donation page direct link to get your name on our list and renew your commitment to our Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber: https://usc.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_cTKwbhUykVzL95Q
