A Pasadena musician has donated the proceeds of her first CD to Hospice of the Chesapeake.
Peggy O’Neil Gilligan, a Pasadena resident for 60 years and a Hospice volunteer, released Winter Sky, a collection of holiday songs, in November. The CD was sold at Treasures and other local business around Severna Park.
According to a release from Hospice of the Chesapeake, Gilligan donated $5,600 from CD sales to the nonprofit headquartered in Annapolis. The donation will benefit the many programs and services offered by Hospice of the Chesapeake.
In November, Gilligan told Patch she chose Hospice because of the level of compassion the employees and volunteers show every day.
“There are so many charities that involve children, or I guess charitable things that are more upbeat for most people to think about,” Gilligan said. “I found it so amazing the level of caring and passion Hospice of the Chesapeake gave to people as well as families in a difficult time. It seemed to be a place where I really wanted to put my time as well as any money that I can raise for the cause.”
Hospice of the Chesapeake is currently located in Annapolis but will soon move to a new location that is right on the Severna Park/Pasadena line on Ritchie Highway.
