Meet The Queen – of Katwe
Saturday, August 12th
10:00am to 3:30pm
We are hosting a special event limited to 25 students. We are showing the inspiring biographical drama: “Queen of Katwe”, followed by a simul game vs the actual people characterized in the movie. We were able to arrange their visit to Sonoma County through a business associate.
This is an inspiring Disney film that takes place in a very underprivileged area in Uganda in which the town of Katwe has a person teaching chess to young children and they become very successful despite many trials and tribulations. This is an inspiring film for children and adults alike.
Space limited to 25 players and their family members.
