Central Falls Mayor James Diossa is stepping in to help the Central Falls High School Chess team make their way to the national chess tournament in Tennessee.

The mayor will host a fundraiser at Taco Mix restaurant on Wednesday March 27 to help the team raise the money to pay for the trip. The event will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Broad street restaurant.

Last month the team prevailed over other Rhode Island schools in the state tournament.

The National tournament will take place in Tennessee from April 4-7. This is not Central Falls High School's first trip to the national tournament they have attended 6 times in the past scoring as one of the top ten teams in the country each time.
