Fundraiser Chess Event in Moore for Oklahoma Tornado Victims

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2013

Hi everyone, 

Chess Blog just received this note from chess lovers in Moore: Sadly, in the wake of the May 20th tornado in Moore, Oklahoma, tens of thousands of families have lost their homes. And children are left with uncertain futures and in many cases deprived of fun summer activities that they had planned.

Learners Chess Academy will be pitching in by collaborating with the Moore Public Library to run a free chess camp for children of affected families. Coach Victor and Coach Doug will head out there to run the camp from June 10th - 14th. Please support our efforts by making a donation. Many thanks to our early named sponsors (growing!):

NM Senator Jacob R. Candelaria
Victor and Antoinette Sedillo Lopez
German & Associates (via Joshua Tenorio!)

Chess Blog wishes them all the best with their chess fundraiser and our heart goes out to the victims. May chess help them heal.
