Arts for Healing Family Chess Night

We would like to invite you  to come to Arts for Healing at 24 Grove Street in New Canaan, bring the kids (especially), and enjoy an evening of chess for a good cause.  There will be chess all night - fun games, speed games, serious games - and a chance for parents to learn how to play from Mike Zadorozny, President of ACTA (American Chess Teachers Association)!  And a very talented young man, Ethan Segall, will be playing simultaneously against whoever wishes to challenge him.    Ethan is a 8th grader and a 3-time CT grade champion with a current rating of 1858 and 32nd in the US for his age!   He is helping out as part of his Mitzvah Project.  In fact, Ethan and his mom initiated this chess connection and they deserve a lot of credit for their efforts.

Dinner, desserts and drinks will be provided!   There is a suggested donation of $20 per family.  With your help, and with some chess fun, you can make a difference for many, many people.  
If you wish to attend, you don't need to be there the entire time - whatever works for you.  But we do need you to RSVP.  The place fills up after about 80 people; so, the sooner we hear from you, the happier we can make you!  It will be a great night for a great cause.

And Yankee/Red Sox fans - don't worry.  The American League Championship Series doesn't get started until the next night so there will be no game to miss.
