The 35th Annual Golf Tournament

On Thursday, May 5, Washington Hospital Healthcare Foundation welcomed golfers back to the 35th Annual Golf Tournament at The Club at Castlewood in Pleasanton. After two years of being unable to gather in-person, the tournament brought together friends and community members to raise money for surgical services at Washington Hospital. Funds raised will help meet the rising patient demand for critical and lifesaving surgical procedures by funding state-of-the-art surgical equipment and technology for Washington Hospital’s Operating Rooms. For thirty-five years, the golf tournament has raised money for Washington Hospital. The Foundation is thrilled to announce it was yet another successful year with proceeds totaling over$89,000 in net donations.

The tournament is held in memory of Gene Angelo Pessagno, a founding member of the Washington Hospital Healthcare Foundation and longtime Fremont business owner. A sincere thanks to Laura Pessagno and her family for their longtime commitment to the Foundation, Service League and to Washington Hospital.

Special recognition was also given in memory of longtime Golf Chairman and Foundation Trustee, Lamar Hinton. This was the first tournament without him and he was dearly missed by all attendees.

The Foundation would like to recognize the following sponsors and donors. We are grateful for their support!
