About Ace for a Cure:
JDRF Delaware’s Ace for a Cure tennis tournament and luncheon continues its third year at Wilmington Country Club! In 2015, we celebrated a decade of tennis as the concept first began at Germantown Cricket Club in Philadelphia by Timmi & Jim Vesci, whose daughter has type 1 diabetes. The Vesci Family wanted to rally their tennis community together and raise much-needed research funds for JDRF.

Since the first tournament 11 years ago, Ace for a Cure expanded the tournaments to additional events at Merion Cricket Club and Wilmington Country Club. Ace for a Cure has raised a cumulative $410,000 for diabetes research..
