We’re now just past the halfway point for this year’s critical fund-raising drive for our Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber. We say “critical” because our Chamber relies on the local diving community to provide about 55% of the annual funding and the proceeds from Chamber Day go a long way to filling that need every year.

In terms of pace, we’re sort of a mixed bag right now, being ahead of the record-setting pace from last year in some areas and behind in others. The short version is that the diving portion (boats & Dutchman) are slightly behind while the dining portion (Eve and Virtual Eve) are slightly ahead. And the Challenge is doing well but we’ve also had some big donors give earlier this year than they did last year, which skews things a bit.

You rely on your Chamber being there for you (if needed) on a 24/7/365 basis. We rely on you to be there for your Chamber only once a year, and this is that time. We hope you’ll support us in this time of need. The direct link to our sign-up page is: https://usc.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_dnemil47PUc8aGy
