In the Face Of An Angel Golf Tournament, helping to raise awareness about Ovarian Cancer.

Category Archives: Uncategorized

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…

2015 In The Face of an Angel Golf for Ovarian Cancer 378Well today I finally met with Avery and Ashleigh of Ovarian Cancer Canada to finally finalize our 2015 “In The Face of an Angel” Golf for Ovarian Cancer Tournament held at Ayren Links Golf Course and I was able to present them a cheque from the tournament for $8,150. I am sure they must have been thinking we would never be able to catch up with each other, but  how fantastic it was to be able to give them another wonderful donation from this little tournament. When we added in the online donations of $1,050 PLUS the offline donations of $1,195 the grand total this tournament made for Ovarian Cancer Canada was $10,395 ! There were high fives all around! I know Avery was elated, as today was her last day with this Ovarian Cancer Canada group because she was heading to Whitehorse to finally meet up with her hubby! What a great guy he must be to have put up with such a long time in this long distance relationship as newly weds! The sacrifices they make for Cause! The people of Whitehorse don’t realize what a cracker jack volunteer they are getting in Avery but it won’t be long until they do!

Our cumulative total for our short 5 years doing this is now over $50,000

Ovarian Cancer Canada has advised me they will now keep the “donation page” open for us to be able to donate through the year so if you want to donate when someone passes away for example, you will be able to go to our website, http://www.inthefaceofanangel.ca and donate through their secure page that is linked to this and donate without any concerns. You will also be able to take advantage and donate using your visa/mc or amex on a monthly plan if it is easier for you. Along with all the other options, you can’t beat that option now can you!?

I am humbled by your continued generosity. The true winner in all of this is Ovarian Cancer Canada and the Outreach and Research programs they are able to provide with this funding to the hundreds of women in need of this support in our communities.

Rain, Sleet, Snow, or Hail does not deter the women who continue to golf in this tournament! Each and every one of them are troopers who play not only for the love of the game but for the Cause. Thank You Ladies for another super year and as you prepare to put your clubs away for this season, think back and remember it was each and every one of you who helped achieve this remarkable goal and for that I am forever grateful. See you May 29th, 2016 for our 6th “In The Face of an Angel” Golf for Ovarian Cancer Tournament! Save the date,won’t you?

Hello again…We just got back from Ayren Links golf course and going over the final details with Moe and Betty. Betty let me know in no uncertain terms that there is a dress code on this course and will be in force on the day of the tournament. I wish I had been told sooner and I would have sent it all with the golf package! I don’t like surprises….

Here are the details for everyone…please be sure to dress accordingly…I’d hate to have anyone asked to leave because they did not dress appropriately. I am sure this group dresses appropriately all the time so I am expecting no issues to have to deal with anyway…here are the requirements….

Golf Skirts-Knee Length

Slacks

Shorts with minimum inseam

Full Shirts-if sleeveless must have a collar

Socks

NOT ALLOWED:

Cut Offs

Spandex/Lycra

Tank Tops

Sandals or Golf Sandals

Lets get ready to raise plenty of funds for Ovarian Cancer this year and have a great time doing it! I am looking forward to seeing everyone again and hope that Mother Nature shines pleasantly down on us once again this year! See you all soon!


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!


Wow, today has been a great day! The silent auction items have been coming in and Republic Live has confirmed 2 General Admission Tickets to the “Boots&Hearts” 2015 Event at Burls Creek for our silent auction table! Local businesses are coming to the forefront with pet bags, product vouchers, ipod speakers and gift cards. By the time this great fun event takes place we’ll have a massive selection of fund raising items that are sure to bring big bids for Ovarian Cancer! Keep them coming in and we’re sure to make this the biggest success ever! Stay tuned!!


Thank you so much to all the participants, sponsors and volunteers of the In The Face Of An Angel Ladies Golf Tournament Benefiting Ovarian Cancer Canada.
