9th Annual Wisconsin All Girls Chess Championships

The Wisconsin Scholastic Chess Federation is sponsoring its 9th Wisconsin All Girls Chess Championships

This year the tournament will be on April 5, 2014 at the University SchoolWebsite.

Money from the WSCF that has been awarded to Tournament winners is set aside (held in escrow) and sent directly to the bursar's office of the college of the enrollee's choice upon confirmation of enrollment so - not to put too fine a point on it - donors know that their donations are going exactly where they want -- to fund winners' college semesters! 

Right now, WSCF is doing fund-raising for the 9th Wisconsin All Girls Chess Championships and the 4th Queens Game All Girls Chess Camp.  The goal this year is $9,000.  This season, some special incentives are being offered to donors who donate at a certain level:

Receive a reward when you donate at a certain level!
For your generous donation, you will receive the following reward when you donate at the specified level.

One Year Membership to
Heavy Pink Tournament Chess Set (or color of your choice)
A 30 min Private Lesson with Chess Coach Leonid Aranovich
A Saitek Chess Clock
One Night Stay at the Kalahari Resort

(Italicized portion above from an email I received). 

Personally, I don't need any additional incentives to donate to a program I believe in so much and have supported since Day One.  I have to tell you though, I rather like the idea of a pink chess set.  I have no idea what a Saitek Chess Clock is...  As for a private chess lesson, is Coach Aranovich single and is he cute???  Just kidding!
