Castlettes golf group donates $4,000+ to Hope Hospice

Contribution honors memory of late Castlewood Country Club pro

Members of the Castlettes, a nine-hole ladies golf group at Pleasanton's Castlewood Country Club, presented a $4,085 check to Hope Hospice last week to help the nonprofit continue its work providing end-of-life care for Tri-Valley residents.

The donation, raised during the Castlettes' annual holiday fundraiser, honors the memory of former Castlewood golf professional Piper Wagner, who died in August 2014 at age 45 following a battle with lung cancer. Wagner received care from Hope Hospice before her death.

"We are grateful to the Castlettes for their ongoing support of Hope Hospice," Hope Hospice CEO Bob Boehm said in the statement. "Thanks to their generosity, families in the Tri-Valley and surrounding area can receive high quality, personalized end-of-life care so they can enjoy what matters most to them."

As a nonprofit, Hope Hospice relies on community contributions to consistently deliver care to local residents and families regardless of insurance, income status or nation of origin or religion, organization officials said.
