This is a FUNDRAISER TOURNAMENT! In these trying times, we wanted to use this tournament as a way to give back to those who are the most in need. Thus, we’ll be raising money for the United Nations Children's Fund [UNICEF]. This tournament is a fuse of Congress & Model UN, so we’re donating to the UN organization to help fight the global pandemic!

If you can, we greatly encourage everyone to donate to UNICEF on our GoFundMe HERE!
