Below is Information for our April 11 Online Chess Tournament Fundraiser: Benefitting the Central Texas Food Bank
Hello Chess Players!
As the COVID-19 crisis continues, many families are still struggling to acquire necessities during these tough times. In addition to this crisis, Texas families were devastated by massive winter storms that swept through the state, putting many of them in tough circumstances. As a result, people are still lacking access to nutritious meals. Food banks all around Texas are working hard to provide for those in need. Therefore, I am hosting this online Chess Tournament Fundraiser. ALL proceeds will be donated to the Central Texas Food Bank, a member of Feeding America. Every $1 donated can help provide 4 nutritious meals to feed hungry children, seniors and families in Texas. I hope you will contribute to this cause and let's have a great tournament!
