This is the 6th Annual In The Face of an Angel Golf for Ovarian Cancer and we are almost ready to hit those links! Registrations are coming in daily and I see our last years Winners are coming back to defend their title! Althea, Debbie, Eudora and Cindy are dusting off their clubs and Eudora has probably got the jump on all of us by playing while on vacation in sunny Florida!
Our tournament is being held this year at the beautiful Newcastle Golf & Country Club and Ev is busy preparing things for us to hit the links for a tee off at 1 PM. Dee’s Catering will be bringing a hearty menu once again and one thing for sure is no matter how we play the beautiful meal Dee does for us is heavenly and a great way to end the day!
There will be a silent auction table with great new items added this year and remember all proceeds go to Ovarian Cancer Canada for their Research and Outreach Programs. As you know we have given them over $50,000 in the last 5 years which everyone is thrilled with so even tho it is costing us more to host it this year we have still set our goal at $10,000 and I know you will all help us reach that goal.
I have upgraded my clubs this year at Dan’s Custom Clubs in Hampton and am looking for a much more comfortable game after my surgery this winter…This tournament is my springboard for the others I enter this summer raising funds for all the other causes I play in support of so I can only get better. 🙂
So ladies, round up your teammates to play, your family, neighbours and friends to donate online let’s send Ovarian Cancer Canada the biggest donation we have yet!
I will be updating and blogging routinely up to and including the tournament so watch for them. Sign up for this for free and stay updated with the days events. You will be glad you did!
Until next time…
Hi again every one!
Tonight at 9 pm is the 7th anniversary of my Mom’s death from this dreaded #1 silent killer of women’s cancers. Please get tested…do not put it off…there are virtually no symptoms so as part of your annual check up insist your doctor tests you for it. It may or may not show up but do your due diligence….we lose too many to this what they call Ovarian Cancer!
Just days to go to the 5th Annual In The Face of an Angel Golf for Ovarian Cancer Tournament! Everything is coming together nicely and donations for our silent auction are wonderful items everyone should be pleased to bid on! We even have a lunch donated at Queens Park with our MPP Granville Anderson! How cool is that? Some of you are donating online at our secure donation site http://inthefaceofanangel.ca and that is appreciated and needed very badly. Let’s make this 5th Annual In The Face of an Angel Golf for Ovarian Cancer Research and Outreach Programs a record year! Please help me do that…Donate NOW! No amount is too small…
I was over to see Moe today to check how things were moving along and the course is looking lovely. They’ve done a lot of work in a few short weeks…We ought to have a great time even if it is going to be cooler…dress warm…we will all be riding a cart you know :>
So I will keep you updated on where we are at every day so make sure you check it out…
Have a wonderful day!
Wow …we’re sure getting some interesting Silent Auction items once again! Along with the 4 General Admission Tickets for Boots and Hearts, this year being held at Burls Creek…we’ve now just got a load of Granular A gravel from Dufferin/Holcim Aggregates! Great for repair in your driveway!! It’s a $500 value so get your thinking caps on and decide who wants it and where will you need to put it?? Any on us who live in the country could certainly use a good load of Granular A…it becomes a hot commodity this time of year for driveway repair due to damage over the long harsh winter we just had…
East Oshawa Animal Hospital has donated 2 gift baskets, one for a dog and one for a cat! Each basket is worth approx $90 of toys, treats and food!
Mill Valley Trophies of Cobourg has donated a golf shirt, visor, we have A SIGNED mounted photo of Olympic Gold Medalist, Tara Watchorn when she scored the winning goal vs Sweden!
There will be various gift certificates, a $100 gift certificate from Bill Bath for house painting is just one of them… there will be various baskets of goodies and much more I know will be coming in as it is still early and we have just started to gather up these great items donated by many great sponsors in our community…I will update as I pick these items up…
If you or your company would like to donate a silent auction item, let me know…I’d be happy to come get it from you…these items really help us raise funds for Ovarian Cancer and since May 8 is World Ovarian Cancer Day, it is a great time to make that commitment to the Cause.
I hope you are all out there on the driving range getting the creaks out of your joints and warming up your clubs…it will be a fun day and we have a special guest coming to check out our tournament from Ovarian Cancer this year…Avery is Ovarian Cancer Canada’s fundraising Queen so I hope she will see all the good things going on with this tournament and be as proud of it as I am!
So ladies…it looks like we will have a great day for this tournament if you believe the long range forecast for May…Cross your fingers! Rain or Shine we are bound to have a fun time raising money for Ovarian Cancer again this year! See you on the course!
