Hello Chess Players!
As the COVID-19 crisis continues, many families are struggling to acquire necessities during these tough times. Arizona cases continue to rise and food banks around the Valley 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 United Food Bank of Arizona, a member of Feeding America. Every $1 donated can help provide 5 nutritious meals to feed hungry children, seniors and families in Arizona. I hope you will contribute to this cause and let's have a great tournament!
