Chess on Market Update!

Hi all,

With your help, we've raised $990 online with an additional $2,500 that came via check. We secured a chess table and chairs (an additional $2,500 value) from the generous manufacturer.

The big news is that we also won a $50,000 grant from the city for UN Plaza improvements some of which we hope will include funds for chess and other kinds of play.

In the meantime, we've been working with DPW to place the chess table that's already been donated in the right spot on Market Street.

Chess will live again!! Thank you for your support and keep in touch with SF Beautiful (and get more updates as this campaign marches on) online at

Thank you!
