ItÕs Time to Tee Off in Support Surgical Care
Tournament participation and sponsorships opportunities are still available
On Monday, April 28, golf enthusiasts and friends of Washington Hospital will continue a 29-year local tradition that has raised more than $1.5 million in support of health care services for the residents of Washington Township Health Care District. The golfers will tee off at Washington Hospital Healthcare FoundationÕs 29th Annual Golf Tournament at Castlewood Country Club in Pleasanton.
Since 1985, golfers at all levels of ability and experience have gathered for the annual tournament, enjoying a day on the links followed by an awards banquet in the evening. Those who donÕt wish to golf but would like to support Washington Hospital can attend the reception and awards banquet.
ÒEach year, people come to enjoy the fun and fellowship, but they also want to support healthcare programs in our community,Ó says Carol Dutra-Vernaci, Foundation President. ÒThis year, proceeds from the tournament will help fund surgical care at Washington Hospital. Because surgical innovation is always advancing, the Foundation looks forward to helping underwrite the cost of operating room instruments that surgeons will need in the future."
In addition to the 18-hole golf tournament, the event will also include a putting contest, lunch, cocktail reception and awards banquet. During the banquet, a selection of exciting golf equipment, weekend getaways and other items will be up for bid at a silent auction. There will also be a live auction offering a day at the spa, an opportunity to play in the Lexus Champions for Charity National Golf Tournament at Pebble Beach, a private sky box at an Oakland Athletics game and more!
The event is held in memory of longtime Fremont businessman Gene Angelo Pessagno, a founding member of Washington Hospital Healthcare Foundation. Gene Angelo PessagnoÕs widow, Laura, and her family continue to be enthusiastic supporters of the 29-year-old golf tournament. In addition, as a founding member of the Washington Hospital Service League, Laura has been an active volunteer at Washington Hospital for 58 years.
ÒWe are looking forward to a great day on the golf course with friends and colleagues,Ó said Lamar Hinton, who is serving again as Golf Tournament chairman. ÒIÕd like to thank our committeeÕs volunteers for their dedication and hard work in making the entire day a fun and rewarding experience for every participant.Ó
ÒI would also like to extend special thanks to this yearÕs Gold Sponsor, Fremont Bank, for their continued support year after year,Ó Hinton emphasized.
