Onward and upward!!! We passed $55,000!!!

Again in this update, we see the value of matching grants. Cynthia Yonker, who works for E. & J. Gallo, and who has been a supporter of the event in the past, made a $1,000 Gold-level donation. And her employer is going to match her donation with another $1,000. Now THAT’S a wine with a great finish.

We also received a $500 Silver-level donation from Rex Uber, not only a longtime supporter of our Chamber but also someone who back in November went public with his (mild) bends hit, but which certainly underscored the need for a Chamber.

So whether you think you’ll ever get bent or not, supporting our Chamber is like buying insurance: You hope you’ll never need it, but if you do . . .

We’ve got a dozen days to go. Please go to our donation page ( CHAMBER DAY 2019 DONATION PAGE ) and add your name to those below who have already contributed. Who's next??? Who’s going to push us towards (or past) past $60,000???
