Carrying on a tradition that her sister started, Emma Perelman and fellow Shady Side Academy varsity tennis players Amanda Murphy and Madison Mordoh on Sunday hosted the seventh Swing for a Cure at the Mellon Park Tennis Center.
The event raised more than $50,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation in past years. This year's programs included a new, free clinic for Inner City Junior Tennis Program participants, along with tennis lessons for children ages 4 to 14.
Perelman's sister Sara, now a junior playing tennis at Cornell University, started the event in 2006 to honor a cousin.
