On Saturday, June 7, the Sydne Jacoby Foundation Inc. will be hosting the Second Annual “Ace It for Syd” Tennis Tournament at the Oceanside High School Tennis Courts. The tournament is open to teams of all ages and levels, and begins at 9:00 a.m.

The Sydne Jacoby Foundation Inc. was founded less than a year ago as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in the memory of Sydne Jacoby, an Oceanside High School graduate who tragically passed away at the age of 19 while attending the University of Massachusetts. Sydne earned a scholarship to the University of Massachusetts and felt fortunate to be able to pursue her education on scholarship. The  goal of the Sydne Jacoby Foundation is to award a scholarship to an Oceanside High School senior in Sydne’s honor for years to come.

This will be the second year of the Ace It for Syd Tennis Tournament, and all proceeds will go to the Foundation, which raises money both for the Oceanside High School Scholarship Fund, as well as Autism Speaks.

The cost is $50 per team, and you can also participate in drills with a certified pro for $25. The Foundation is seeking sponsorship for the event, and will provide a banner thanking all sponsors for their generosity and participation.
