Hello everyone! We have just confirmed that we have once again secured Pebblestone Golf Course in Courtice for our 8th Annual Golf for Ovarian Cancer Tournament! Kate Sobil, owner of Pebblestone Golf, and I have been in touch and firmed up the course rental and are preparing to sit down and finalize all the details! I hope you are as excited as I am!
In the past 7 years we have raised $73,285.00 for Ovarian Cancer Research and Outreach! Give yourselves a pat on your backs as without you we would never be able to achieve all we have. I am so proud of what we have been able to do with such a small “family”of golfers! To our sponsors as well, Thank you just doesn’t seem like enough to say!
Ovarian Cancer Canada, Pebblestone Golf Club and us have worked out the “kink’s we ran into last year and hope to have smooth sailing this time round. With banking made so much easier you will be able to use your credit cards or debit this year for all your silent auction items right at the course as we have SQUARE set up for both so we are good to go!
CIRCLE the date! May 27th, tee off time will be 10:30 a.m. 1/2 hour earlier than last year so please make a note of that…watch for more updates coming out and be sure to tell your friends and relatives to donate online through our secure website and start the ball rolling won’t you? Ovarian Cancer Canada and I will thank you and so will all the recipients of our donations!
Thanks to the Municipality of Clarington for being our first sponsor of the year!
We can now add ….
The Old Newcastle House Tap and Grill
Halminen Building Corp(Courtice)
Thank you kindly! It will help to go a long way We will spend it wisely to help us raise funds for this dreaded disease!
Until next time…keep smiling!
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!
