As mentioned in a previous post, I will be distributing some funds each year for select juniors in chess.
In recognition of my aunt's anniversary (passed away a few years ago), I have named the fund after her. She spent every moment of her life trying to make others happy. The Elaine Howie Fund for Chess Juniors gives me the opportunity to spread her support.
Friends/family - please consider making a donation to the Elaine Howie Fund in place of gifts you would otherwise give me. Even $5 or $10 helps ensure children are recognized for their efforts. All donated money is paid out to recipients. I provide the additional certificates/prizes/miscellaneous expenses as my own contribution.
Contributions to the fund (including that which was paid out last year):
BZ and family - $25
DH and family - $20
JW - $20
LK - $50
GS and family - $20
IB - $10
LK and family - $100
Youth Girls Award donor - $100 each year x 5 years
