I need to point out that this years tournament has a cut off date of May 7th for anyone to register to play! Please get your registrations in early to avoid disappointment! There can be no exceptions to this as I have to totally commit to Pebblestone Golf and will not be allowed to alter the numbers past this date. As you know it’s easier than ever this year by e-transferring your registration fee to firstname.lastname@example.org Check out the website for the link. Don’t forget to tell your neighbours and friends to donate online. The Donation Page is set up through Ovarian Cancer Canada and is totally secure. Please encourage them to be generous. Ovarian Cancer Canada will send the receipt directly to the donor for income tax purposes.
I look forward to hitting the links and raising funds for Ovarian Cancer Canada for the Outreach and Research Programs. We are definitely making a difference! You can be so proud of that!
The organizers of our 4th Annual “In The Face of an Angel” Golf for Ovarian Cancer are kicking into high gear and getting ready for 2014 driving it to be more successful than ever! Sponsors are coming on board to help out and the volunteers are busy gathering up the donations as we speak! The prizes are getting better and the wine will be ready for all to enjoy.

The place where we can laugh, golf and spend time with our friends while fundraising for the fight against the #1 killer of women, Ovarian Cancer…..

To the volunteers that helped out organizing and making sure it went well, I thank you! You all know who you are.

The day started of with us all wondering if we were going to get rain that usually threatens at that time of year but Mother Nature smiled upon us once again and we sent volunteer Ron Hooper to the chipping contest location and volunteer Willie Woo to the putting contest location and off we went to our individual holes to start the tournament.
Fred Archibald, had done a fantastic job preparing Cider House Golf Course for us, the fairways and greens were lovely, the sun was shining, we couldn’t ask for better conditions. Many memories, much laughter and even a fun round of golf was had.
Dee’s Harvest Table once again catered the event and did a fabulous job! The food was delicious and so much to be had, thank goodness the ladies were hungry and many went for seconds. A compliment to any Chef!
Catherine Argiropoulous of Ovarian Cancer Canada, came again this year and spoke to us about the ways our funds are used in the research and development with Ovarian Cancer Canada and of some of the strides that have been made over the past year. It is great to know our dollars raised help women who can’t otherwise afford the prosthesis necessary, counselling or the have the ability to attend a support group. These are just some of the ways we are helping, there are many more…
A thank you to our 2013 winners! Stephanie Best, Sandy Best, Bennita Brown, and Linda Kocur! Good job ladies! Your name has made it to the big trophy for 2013 and you should be proud!
So that pretty well sums up the 2013 “In The Face Of An Angel” Golf for Ovarian Cancer Tournament. This tournament is in memory of my Mom, Bernice who passed away in 2008 of Peritoneal Ovarian Cancer, a rare form of Ovarian Cancer. Mom would be proud of the job we are doing raising funds that will hopefully help so many women in Canada. Mom was a wonderful woman who loved to have fun and I know she will be looking down on us guiding and protecting us all. I know we had a lot of fun and look forward to a fantastic time in 2014!
Hope to see you there!
