Barrington Hills resident and Gourmet cook, Zein Bertacchi along the non-profit Chess Without Borders has donated almost $104,000 to various local and global charities. One of the ways this remarkable feat was possible was through food. Through her enthusiasm and talent for cooking Zein Bertacchi was able to convert hundreds of youth into social entrepreneurs. Under her leadership youth learned to play host as they helped to cook, serve, clean and create an atmosphere of excitement by doing things for others.

Zein Bertacchi is a Microbiologist by professional and she will be at Countryside School serving homemade Middle Eastern food at the Countryside School Chess Tournament. 100% of the proceeds of the tournament will be donated to a charity for the Chicago Chess Center whose members are trying to bring chess education to the public.

You can help by playing in the tournament on the 17th of May at Countryside School or by joining us for a meal that day anytime from 10 am to 3 pm.
