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

Just days to go…

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!

Mom, Bernice

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…

Ayren Links Required Attire…

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

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!

Interesting Silent Auction Items coming in…

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!

Tournament is full!

Good morning ladies! Well our 5th Annual “In The Face of an Angel”, Golf for Ovarian Cancer is FULL! We will have 48 women golfing with us this time around which is wonderful! I look forward to seeing both the old and new faces to this tournament on May 31st at 10:30 a.m!

I’d like to thank those businesses who have come to help already as Sponsorship’s and Hole Sponsors are coming in and we are gathering silent auction items from local businesses and Corporations as we speak. If you or your business feel would like to donate or be a part of this great cause, please let me know. I would appreciate all the participation we can muster. It is a great cause and one that needs all the exposure it can get.

Let’s face it, without the help of our business community, tournaments like this would be in jeopardy. Hats off to all of you!

If you know people who would like to donate to this tournament send them to my website at http://www.inthefaceofanangel.ca and they can follow the links to donate online. It’s easy, it is secure as it is set up by Ovarian Cancer Canada and linked with my site. Anything will be greatly appreciated and tax receipts will be issued by Ovarian Canada for any amount over $20.00

So ladies even though it may be raining today, dust off those clubs, clean up those shoes and match your outfits! LOL We’re ready to play golf for a great cause. Ovarian Cancer research and outreach programs. Help the women you know (and those that you don’t) Let’s all make a difference today!
