This is how we got to the total we announced Wednesday evening. This will likely NOT be the final amount as we had some post-May 4 donations already, and we leave the Challenge open for a few days following Chamber Day.

But in this go-round, we have a Gold-level donation from k;-) in honor of both Dr. Bill Bushing and Dottie Frazier, who he says were great inspirations and influences in his diving career.

We also have two Silver-level donations, one from Kathleen Kalohi and the other from zen dive co through their dive club. Both are previous supporters of our Chamber and we’re quite happy to have them both back on our list.

As I mentioned above, we’ll keep Challenge donations and the Dutchman open through next weekend, which is also the end of the Scuba Show (where we’ll be doing our annual “Why Divers Die” panel at 4PM on Saturday). So you can still get your name added to the list and push us even higher.

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
