Jeffrey and Max playing double chess games with Seneca Hill Saturday students

In the past Saturday Chess program, we had a Double Chess Fundraising Event for WCCC participants Jeffrey Zhao and Max Chen. Jeff and Max shared their WCCC experience with the students while they played double chess games. We raised a total of $226. Seneca Hill doubled the amount and Jeff and Max each will receive $226 in the upcoming OCC qualifier on December 8.

“WCCC 2018 in Santiago, Spain was a wonderful experience overall, I got to play rounds of chess with a diversity of people around the globe that were my age and I learned so much from each of them. During tournament, I received gifts from people so I had souvenirs as memories for the good time that I wouldn’t want to forget in the future. We also explored Santiago, tried different foods from its traditions and learned more about the unique culture.                                                                      Thanks Seneca Hill Chess fundraising event for the WCCC participants, I have had lots of fun.”                                                    — Max Chen
