The fourth annual Emma’s Doubles for Diabetes event was held Nov. 20-21 at Highland Country Club. The event, held in memory of Emma Dixon, who died in 2018 at age 12, raises money for juvenile diabetes research. It featured a World Team Tennis event, as well as a tennis social for all ages and a golf tournament, known as Emma’s Eagles. Through sponsorships, players, raffles and a silent auction, the event raised a record $44,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, bringing the four-year total to nearly $150,000.
