What we're about

Chess 4 Charity is an annual event (or more often) for kids, adults, and families to come play chess and raise money for a great cause. This will be our 3rd Annual Event, and we're looking to have them more often, if we can find enough supporters. The first 2 events raised over $7,000 for charities - The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater DC (which helps families of hospitalized kids) and the Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund of the Red Cross. This year, all proceeds from the event will go to the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals via the Torch Relay. We've set an ambitious goal to try to raise $10,000 for the charity. But the event is a fun, social opportunity, too. Play chess, eat pizza, hang out, and just have fun. More details are available on www.chess4charity.com or www.chess4charity.org.
