It seems entirely appropriate that this is the week we can announce that we have eclipsed $80,000.

The first phase of this eclipse starts off with GUE instructor Francesco Cameli and his $1,000 Gold-level donation. Francesco is a regular supporter of our Chamber and certainly knows that when something goes wrong on a dive, itís critical to have a resource like our Chamber ready to respond.

The next phase is a quintet of $500 Silver-level donors in the form of Peter Quinones, James Whipple, Scuba By Design (Lisa Beach), Louis Weisberg, and Scott Barnes. All five of these folks have donated to this event before and all five realize how important that is. Itís also a great example how a bunch of donations all add up to make a big difference.

Just because the solar eclipse is over, that doesnít mean we can let up. Weíve still got a ways to go and three weeks to get there. We can do it with your help. Please donít wait until the last minute. Your Chamberís ready to help you and we hope youíre ready to help your Chamber.
