Castlettes raise funds for Hope Hospice

Golf group lauds nonprofit for compassionate services

by Jeremy Walsh

The Castlettes -- the Castlewood Country Club women's nine-hole golf group -- recently presented a ceremonial donation check to local nonprofit Hope Hospice for $5,700, funds raised as part of the Castlettes' annual charity holiday luncheon.

The fundraising luncheon, themed "Holiday Soiree," took place Dec. 12 and featured more than 30 donated raffle and silent auction items, with proceeds benefiting Hope Hospice.

The event, chaired by Castlettes co-captain Linda Simpson, also helped provide several overflowing bins to Toys for Tots and 42 secret Santa gifts to the Senior Support Program of the Tri-Valley.

"The Castlettes are a generous and lively group of women who are passionate about giving back to their community," Castlettes co-captain Nicole Murray said in a statement.

Hope Hospice holds a special place in the hearts of the golf group, as the nonprofit has provided end-of-life care to several Castlettes over the years, according to Murray.

"While there have been many that passed over the years, we would specifically like to honor the following ladies: Sharry Bautista, Connie Duke, Juliette Simpson and Piper Wagner (Castlewood golf professional)," Murray said. "We are truly grateful for the compassionate services that Hope Hospice provides."

Hope Hospice CEO Bob Boehm, who was on-hand to receive the ceremonial check, credited the Castlettes for their ongoing support of the Dublin-based nonprofit.

"Thanks to their generosity, families in the Tri-Valley and surrounding areas can receive high quality, personalized end-of-life care so they can enjoy what matters most to them," Boehm said.
