The Big Day of Giving

May 4, 2017!

BIGDoG 2017: This is your opportunity to continue making DAM better than ever. For 24 hours, from 12:00 A.M. midnight until 11:50 P.M., you will be able to donate to DAM through The Big Day of Giving is a day in the Sacramento region focusing on supporting charities like DAM. Your gifts will help DAM continue to offer affordable access to its programs and refurbish and buy new equipment, and, in the future, assist in renovating or upgrading pool facilities. For more information, see the team email from April 3.
In addition to supporting DAM, donations will be able to sponsor the Lake Berryessa Open Water Swim and the End of Summer Splash Long Course meet.

Also, to help make the day fun and special, DAM will host a Cinco de Mayo party, with coffee in the morning and chips, salsa, and other Cinco de Mayo snacks later in the day (including margaritas).
You will be able to donate to DAM at Civic Pool, but if you cannot make it to Civic Pool you will still be able to support DAM by donating through the Big Day of Giving's website.  If you are interested in volunteering during workouts on the Big Day of Giving to chat with DAM members and facilitate donations, please contact Greg Stoner at
