    CHAMBER DAY 2021 - CALL FOR SHORT VIDEOS

    This year we're adding a daytime webcast to our Chamber Day menu. We're trying to somewhat replicate the Daytime experience. As such, we had hoped to take those who tune in to the webcast on a virtual dive or two as part of the overall experience. If you've created a 2-4 minute(ish) video of a...

    CHAMBER CHALLENGE 2021 - UPDATE #20 $109,175 (as of 5/1 @ 9AM)

    May Day!!! May Day!!! Happy May Day!!! And Happy that we’re almost at $110,000 and May pass that mark any Day now. We start off with a Gold-level contribution from a longtime dive store supporter, Eco Dive Center, but this year it comes with a tear as it’s in memory of one of their own no...

    CHAMBER CHALLENGE 2021 - UPDATE #19 $106,250 (as of 4/28 @ 4PM)

    One week to go and we keep plugging along, thanks to you, setting a new Challenge record every day. Let’s not stop. The latest folks to power us ahead are the collective members of the San Gabriel Valley Scuba Club who all got together and ponied up a total of $1,025 for a Gold-level...

    CHAMBER CHALLENGE 2021 - UPDATE #18 $104,250 (as of 4/23 @ 2PM)

    Here are words I never thought I’d be able to say about the Challenge: WE PASSED $100,000!!!! The actual total right now is $104,250 with a dozen days to go. The reason for the big jump – almost $15,000 more than two days ago – comes from a very generous donation of $13,600 in the name of...

    CHAMBER CHALLENGE 2021 - UPDATE #17 $90,450 (as of 4/21 @ 2PM)

    We’ve cracked $90,000!!! Never in our wildest dreams did we think back in March when we started, that seven weeks later we’d be able to say that about the Challenge. We start this update off with a Silver-level donation from returning supporter Kathy Kalohi. And she’s backed up by a number of...

    CHAMBER DAY & CHAMBER EVE 2021 - EVENT UPDATE "E" (as of 4/21/21 @ 8AM)

    Chamber Day/Eve 2021 is two weeks from today. Overall we’re in fairly good shape but could certainly use help in beefing up a couple of areas. This is a more critical year than usual because not all that much changed for us during the pandemic these past 12 months. We still had crews on standby...

    CHAMBER CHALLENGE 2021 - UPDATE #16 $89,175 - A NEW RECORD!!! (as of 4/17 @ 2PM)

    IT’S A BRAND-NEW CHALLENGE RECORD!!!! Wow. Never in our wildest dreams did we think we’d be able to eclipse last year’s record-breaking Chamber Challenge. But we have. And now the question is: How high can we go? Patience has never been my strong suit so when I talked to Karl this morning to...

    CHAMBER CHALLENGE 2021 - UPDATE #15 $88,675 (as of 4/16 @ 3PM)

    Sooooooo close to a new record!!!! Less than $500 to go . . . Our good friends at Galileo Capri helped us make a big jump with their annual Platinum-level $5,000 contribution. They understand not only the importance of our Chamber, but also the importance of supporting organizations who work...

    CHAMBER CHALLENGE 2021 - UPDATE #14 $83,025 (as of 4/15 @ Noon)

    We made it past $80,000 and are closing in on a new record for the Challenge!!! The biggest part of the push comes from Antelope Valley Desert Divers (I’m always afraid I’ll call them “Antelope Valley Dessert Divers”). Their club is very active in supporting many worthwhile causes and they have...

    CHAMBER DAY & CHAMBER EVE 2021 - EVENT UPDATE "D" (as of 4/12/21 @ 9AM)

    We’ve got a little more than three weeks to go. We’re doing well in some areas – the Challenge is poised to set new records – but lagging in others. Traditionally, the pace of signups picks up in April and picks up even more as we get closer and closer to the event date (May 5), but we also...

    CHAMBER CHALLENGE 2021 - UPDATE #13 $76,525 (as of 4/11 @ 10AM)

    We’re closing in on a new record for the Challenge. We set a record last year with $89,160. Can we beat that this year??? The answer lies in YOUR hands. Here are the folks who have accepted that challenge in the past few days. (FTR, we are now at 100 individuals and groups donating to the...

    CHAMBER CHALLENGE 2021 - UPDATE #12 $75,275 (as of 4/7 @ 10AM)

    I can’t believe I’m saying this but . . . We’ve passed $75,000!!! Today’s update also shows the impact of a large donation because we have our first Diamond-level donation this year in the form of a wonderfully generous $10,000 donation from Glenn Suhd. Glenn does a lot of diving abroad but...

    CHAMBER CHALLENGE 2021 - UPDATE #11 $65,175 (as of 4/5 @ 3PM - previous update 4/3)

    YIKES!!!! (And a GOOD “Yikes” at that.) We’ve powered past $65,000!!! A good portion of that comes from an anonymous donation in memory of Dr. Jeff Sipsey. Dr. Sipsey was NOT a diver. But he was an avid hyperbaric guy. Dr. Sipsey started with the Chamber in 1976, during his residency at LAC+USC...

    CHAMBER DAY & CHAMBER EVE 2021 - EVENT UPDATE "C" (as of 4/3/21 @ 3PM)

    We are just a shade over a month away from Chamber Day/Eve 2021 on Wednesday, May 5. We’re making great progress on the Challenge, and doing OK in others areas but could be doing better is some as well. Maybe the biggest challenge (no pun intended) right now is making sure everyone understands...

    CHAMBER CHALLENGE 2021 - UPDATE #10 $59,270 (as of 4/3 @ 10AM)

    We’re bubbling under $60,000!!! When will we cross that threshold?? A large share of the credit for our latest jump goes to Maja Vrvilo, a longtime diver and Chamber Day supporter who has signed on again at the Gold level but has increased her donation this year to $2,500. Maja loves to dive...
