For six years now the Baylor School Boys and Girls Tennis Teams have planned and hosted Serving It Up for Siskin, a mixed doubles tennis tournament benefiting Siskin Children’s Institute.
This year’s event was organized by Izzy Boyd, Anna Hawkins, Miles Kadrie, Landie McBrayer, and Hunter Smith.
The event raised a record breaking $16,100 for children with special needs.
“It’s incredible the dedication these students have and their abilities to plan and organize such a successful event while also fulfilling their school requirements” said Derek Bullard, president and CEO of Siskin Children’s Institute. “We are grateful for their commitment to the children and families we serve.”
Serving it Up for Siskin began as a senior project in 2013 by Baylor alumnae McCall Morgan and Harper Caswell. The original event succeeded tremendously and created a partnership with the Baylor tennis program.
“Having a tennis tournament allows us to do and share something we are all passionate about while raising money and awareness for the Siskin Children’s Institute," said Landie McBrayer. "I hope that we will help make a difference in the life of children with special needs and their families."
Now an annual event, Serving It Up for Siskin has raised approximately $68,990 since its inception.
