Congratulations to Hough Street School and teacher Maggie Gruber on their outstanding presentation on “The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan”. Chess Without Borders will further honor their study of Jordan with a service learning exercise serving homemade Middle Eastern food at the Barbara Rose School chess tournament on June 9th. 100% of the funds raised will be donated to The King Hussein Cancer Foundation that treats cancer patients for free.

CEO of this special project will be our chess player and Hough School students, Zachary George. Zachary will head a special team of volunteers including Rima Said and our very own award-winning cook Zein Bertacchi who has cooked up many dishes at our tournament allowing Chess Without Borders to raise hundreds of dollars.

Please also welcome Rima Said, the grandmother of Robert Said both of whom were special guests at Hough Street School. Rima lives in Jordan and is currently visiting Barrington.  Also volunteering will be Gagan Dang from India who will join other volunteers at Chess Without Borders.

We will also have special music provided by Ron Swanson and his student Toby Schwartz.

Please email if you are able to volunteer.

The Jane Goodall Institute has honored Chess Without Borders with a Certificate of Recognition for the humanitarian work we have done last year. We are proud to be able to work together to accomplish many unique humanitarian projects benefiting both the givers and receivers. A copy of this honor can be picked up at GM Shulman’s office for your records and college applications.
