We’re inching towards $25,000 ... We’re led this time by a pair of longtime Chamber supporters.

The first are the boys and girls at Hollywood Divers who again come through at the Gold level.

They are also sponsoring a Chamber Evening table as well as a boat (the Westerly).

They’re a great example of how this event thrives through the active participation of stores and clubs.

At the Silver ($500) level, we’ve got two examples of corporate matching grants being put to good use.

First of all, we’re two week away from Chamber Day 2017 and this is when the pace really quickens. Which is why what we have to say here is so critically important.

The Catalina Chimes Tower Foundation held its ‘Bells & Whistles’ event at the Catalina Island Museum on Wednesday, April 5 to share progress on the Chimes Tower restoration project. More than 75 Avalon community members and island visitors gathered to hear remarks from Foundation Chair Alison Wrigley Rusack and Vice Chair Blanny Avalon Hagenah. Attendees also had the opportunity to view original architectural drawings, historic photos and chimes mechanisms, as well as architectural renderings depicting the Chimes Tower as it will look upon completion.
