Chamber Day

What a nice way to start the week. We made it past $80,000!!! Can $85K be far behind??? Once again this week, we underscore the value of corporate matching funds.

We start with a wonderful Gold-level donation from the duo of Allison Vitsky Sallmon & Andy Sallmon, long time supporters of our Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber. And because Allison works for Pfizer, there’s also a matching $1,000 coming from the company because they have a very active matching grant program. So thank you all.

We also have another longtime contributor checking back in at the Silver level today and that is Ethan Bush. Like the Sallmons, Ethan has been a regular supporter of our Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber for many years and it’s great to add his name back to our list this year.

So how about you? We have 16 days to go until Chamber Day 2022 (May 4) and we’ve still got a fair amount of fund-raising to do. I don’t know if we can beat last year’s record or not, but with your help, we can sure give it a try. More importantly, the entire effort goes to ensure that anytime you or a friend is out diving in SoCal waters, you can rest assured that if something goes wrong, our Chamber will be standing at the ready to help.

The need for public support of our Chamber is very real. We hope we’ll get yours. Here’s the direct link to make that happen:
