I want to help spread the word for an important event to commemorate a good man, DC area chess player and father Yining Wang, who unfortunately recently passed away. Proceeds will support Mr. Wang's children in their continued pursuit of chess. Even if you aren't local or can't play this Sunday, you can support by making a donation. This is a powerful opportunity for chess supporters. Memorial info is reposted below. Support and spread the word! My condolences to Mr. Wang's family and I wish all the best for his kids!
