In Internet and video game parlance "Easter Eggs" are hidden gems waiting to be found. So we were happy this one day after Easter, to find an "Easter Egg" of our own.

It comes in the form of a very generous donation (through one of their benefactors) on behalf of the ocean Institute in Dana Point. They're dedicated to reaching out to children to teach them all about the ocean and they've been long-time supporters of Chamber as another aspect of their mission to educate.

In addition to their wonderful Diamond level donation of $12,300, they'll be taking two tables at Chamber Evening (and bringing 20 kids to boot), have gotten some extra raffle tickets for them, and ordered magnet sets for each of their attendees as well. So theirs is a significant contribution to our cause.

Yours can be as well but you've got to actually make it. Whether it's $100, $1,000, or $10,000, EVERY dollar raised through this Challenge is not only fully tax-deductible, but also helps keep our Chamber running and strong.

So who's willing to keep us going upward? Who's next???? Who will push us towards $35,000???
