CEDAR GROVE, NJ – The Cedar Grove High School girls’ tennis team held their annual “Serve for the Cure” fundraising event on Oct. 16.
Each fall the CGHS girls’ tennis team hits the courts. They play hard for their short season—facing opponents and challenges throughout—but in the “Serve for the Cure” event every member of the team comes out a winner.
The varsity and junior varsity squads united on Oct. 16, choosing a charity voted on by the team. This year the charity was the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
Each student reached out to sponsors beforehand, and at the event had the opportunity to serve 50 times. For each “fair” serve, their sponsors paid a quarter, 50 cents, or a dollar. This year the grand total earned was $579.
The event was overseen by Varsity Coach Nick Mellina and Junior Varsity Coach Andrea Watson, with “scoring” help from Cedar Grove High School Vice Principal Steven Gallagher, as well as teachers Heather Lauritano, Chuck Linfante, and John Scancarella.
