|CHAMBER CHALLENGE 2023 - UPDATE #9 ($84,150 as of 4/16 @ 4PM - last updated 4/4)|

It’s been 12 days since we last updated you and boy do we have good news today.
We are delighted to welcome back into the fold the Sherry Griswold Foundation as they are our largest donor each year, and they again come through for our Chamber with a whopping $17,500 Challenge donation. This goes along with their Chamber Eve table and extra raffle tickets (another $2,500) for a grand total of $20,000. Needless to say, this is a major leap forward for us this year in the Challenge and we appreciate their continued support over the years.
We also want to acknowledge Carl Felien who comes in at the Silver level this year. Like the Sherry Griswold Foundation, Carl has also been a longtime supporter of the work of our Chamber.
We have two and a half weeks to go until Chamber Day 2023 and things have slowed down a bit. This isn’t good. By the same token, we know that a lot of you prefer to wait until we get closer to the end and have your donation push us past whatever our next dollar marker is. Certainly nothing wrong with that.
But as this is being written, there are still 101 Challenge donors from last year, representing almost $43,000 total, who have yet to make a Challenge donation this year. And we certainly hope that most, if not all, of these people will once again reaffirm their financial commitment to our Chamber. If one of them is you, we need your support. And if you’re not one of those folks, we need you as well.
I mentioned this in our “Live @ 5” update last Friday day and I think it’s worth repeating: Think of your support for our Chamber like an annual subscription. Many of the computer programs you use have transitioned to a subscription basis and you pay for these for an on-going basis. Think of our Chamber in that same light.
The difference with our Chamber is that, while we want you to support us on an on-going basis, we really hope you never need our primary services. But that doesn’t mean you can’t benefit from the educational outreach we do and the on-going effort we make to create a culture of safety in our SoCal diving community.
So our Chamber is about more than just treating bent or embolised divers. And THAT’S where your donations play such a critical role. So . . .
Who’s next? Who can push us past $85,000 and beyond? Here’s the direct link to the donation page to help accomplish that: https://usc.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_dnemil47PUc8aGy
