The girls’ tennis teams from Allegan, Cedar Springs and Comstock Park came together Friday, March 21, to “Rally for the Cure,” in an all-night, fun-filled fundraising match-up in Allegan’s new community fieldhouse to raise funds to further the fight against cancer.

According to Allegan girls’ tennis coach Jennifer Aldrich, the rally was a bigger hit than anyone expected.

She said, “It was a huge success. We had a ton of people from the community come out. The teams earned close to $8,000 and all of that will be donated to the American Cancer Society.
