Baylor Tennis Team Raises Over $13,000 For Kids With Special Needs

Wednesday, January 24, 2018

Baylor School’s girls and boys tennis teams held the fifth annual “Serving It Up For Siskin Children’s Institute” tennis tournament in the fall, raising $13,540 for children with special needs and their families. The funds will support programs and services of Siskin Children’s Institute, the largest and most comprehensive organization serving children with special needs and their families in the tri-state area.

The Baylor tennis students who paved the way for this year’s success include Lauren Carelli, Miles Kadrie, Hailey Kleban, Landie McBrayer, Lilly Mooney, Presley Thomas, and Ryan Toomey. Siskin Children’s Institute gives a special thanks to everyone at Baylor School and the sponsors who made it all possible.

Serving it Up for Siskin Children’s Institute began as a senior project by Baylor alumnae McCall Morgan and Harper Caswell. The event was a tremendous success and a partnership with the Baylor ­tennis programs was born. Now an annual event, the tournament has raised over $50,000 since its inception. Each year the Baylor tennis team passes the torch, building a legacy of giving and community service with a goal to surpass the participation and dollars raised in the previous year.
