Hough Street School Fund Raiser Chess Tournament


Posted: February 16, 2012

The Hough Chess Club is hosting its 4th Annual Chess Tournament/Charitable Fundraiser on Saturday, Feb. 25. At our first tournament, we raised money to finance reconstructive surgery for 5-year-old Meher in India, who was badly burned when her mosquito netting caught fire. The next year, our tournament raised money to send her to school. Meher did SO well! She was first in her class! The Hough Street Chess Club has made a commitment to continue sponsoring Meher so that she will be able to continue to attend school and have a chance for a future. All of the money collected from our tournament will be donated to this worthy cause.

Here’s how you can help:

• Stop by Hough anytime from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. on Saturday for a snack or lunch by Gourmet Cook Zein Bertacchi. All concession proceeds will go toward Meher’s tuition.

Play in the chess tournament. You don't need to be in a chess club. As a matter of fact, you don't even need to be a student! Since this is essentially a fundraiser, we urge ALL interested adults and children to participate. Come find out what it's like to be in a tournament!

Every dime raised will go toward helping Meher.

Thanks so much for your help!
