I don't know if we've ever done TWO Challenge updates in the same day but I thought this merited special attention. Because it's not every day that we get a $5,000 donation and the donor prefers to remain . . . Anonymous. And so it shall be.

But this kind of dedication and support for our Chamber, without the requisite recognition that would go with such a gift, further underscores how a lot of people get it: This event is about all of us in the SoCal diving community coming together for the greater good.

So how about you? We're now within striking distance of $50,000. Who will help get us there???
