The Mall at Wellington Green recently announced the Wellington Green Inaugural Chess Event, created in partnership with Palm Beach Chess Academy and the Mountaineer’s School of Autism. The event will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, June 30.
Building on the Mall at Wellington Green’s two-year relationship with the Mountaineer’s School of Autism, the chess celebration also marks a new relationship with the Palm Beach Chess Academy.
