Chamber Day/Eve 2008

David Fricks over at his scuba diving blog reminds us that the "largest single-day scuba charity event in the United States", USC's Hyperbaric Chamber Day/Eve 2008, is fast-approaching.

This years marks not only the 20th edition of Chamber Day, but also the 10th edition of Chamber Evening, which is the cap to everything and is co-sponsored by the Aquarium of the Pacific. It features full access to the Aquarium, a sit-down dinner in the Great Hall (underneath the life-sized model of a Blue Whale), some awards, a separate raffle, and the presentation of the final check to Karl Huggins, Director of the Chamber.

To recognize both anniversaries, we’re referring to this year’s event as our 20/10 Chamber Day/Eve and hope to make it our best one ever. We’ve got some tricks up our sleeve that will be revealed as we get closer to May 7. But suffice it to say that we can’t do any of this without your help.


The Catalina Chamber is dedicated strictly to the treatment of diving accidents on a 24/7/365 basis. Although we hope you’ll never need it, having the Chamber available gives divers a vital safety net in the event something should go wrong with your dive. Although there is a grant from LA County, and the Chamber gets income from some outside activities, Chamber Day provides a significant portion (roughly 50%) of the Chamber’s annual budget.

Anyone plan to attend?
