We’re nearing the finish line but it’s never too late to support your Chamber.

We start today off with a pair of Silver-level donors. The first is from California Diving News and the Scuba Show, two entities that understand the intricacies of diving in SoCal and who are ready to step up and support our Chamber. And the other is in memory of longtime diver Olly Harris from the dive club to which he belonged and valued, the Douglas Dive Club. Plus we have a number of Bronze-level donors today as well.

Our Chamber is there to support us in our time of need. And hopefully you’re willing to pay that back by supporting your Chamber during this annual fund-raising time of need. If you were walking down the street and saw someone in trouble who said to you, “Can you give me some help?” we’re willing to bet you’d assist.

It’s the same thing here. Your Chamber is asking for your help. Don’t forget that 55% of the annual operating budget must be raised with efforts like Chamber Day. Are you willing to pitch in whatever you can? We’d really appreciate hearing from you and adding your name to our list before this Wednesday. Here’s the direct link to the donation page to make that happen:
