Remarkable goals are becoming possible thanks to the spirit of service and intellectual growth taking place at Chess Without Borders. On Nov 9th 2012 a hundred and thirty students competed at the Grove Avenue Chess Tournament. While they matched their skills other students like Jane and Jack Bradley, Isabella Anzelde and  Rose Abrahamson volunteered to work hard from start to finish.  They prepared for the event by creating decorative and informational posters and menus, shopping and organizing the concession stand in order for it to run as efficiently as possible during the event. During the tournament they bussled about cooking and serving others.  While everyone said their good-byes following the tournament our volunteers continued to help by putting everything away and cleaning.  They raised an amazing amount of $750 through their efforts under the leadership of Margo Bradley Clark, Jeff Clark, Paul Petraitis, the Anzelde’s and Alison Abrahamson.  The Menikoff’s helped as well by donating some snacks and drinks.  It was a wonderul Chess Community effort!
This money will be donated to the Maggie Gruber Computer Center in Delhi, India. This education center run by Project Why serves families and children from the slums of Delhi. The center has been visited by Barrington residents such as Teacher Maggie Gruber, Dr Kiran Frey, Austen Murrow and her grandmother and Sujit Johnston. A relationship was established with the 180 students being educated through this center.
Students such as Jack and Jane Bradley, Isabella Anzelde and others through CWB are supported when they choose to create humanitarian projects. They selected the building of a computer center as a beneficiary of their service so that other children like them can have opportunities to learn and communicate with others.

Because of the involvement and high expectations of our parents, teachers and community our students are able to achieve these high humanitarian goals.
