I just wanted to once again say THANK YOU!! to all of you who braved the elements and hung in there to play in our 5th Annual In The Face of an Angel Golf for Ovarian Cancer Tournament! You truly are troopers who play for the CAUSE!
I have to say how upset I was when I realized I had not thanked my good friend, Jackie Foxall of The Castle Cellar, Newcastle for donating the lunch wine for all you ladies to enjoy! Once again, Jackie goes to the wall for our tournament and does so without hesitation. I really don’t even need to ask her to help, she just does…Jackie is just one of those amazing ladies! We are so glad she is so dedicated to this CAUSE and we have her on our TEAM! If you get a chance to go into The Castle Cellar stop by and say hi to Jackie, she always has the time to chat with you no matter how busy she might be!
Today was an awesome day! Yes, it was cold and rainy and the true winners of the day were Ovarian Cancer Canada! Ovarian Cancer Canada has no government funding for its work and relies heavily on people like you and me to do our part raising funds for their Research and Outreach Programs. Avery Morris, one of Ovarian Cancers 2 Fundraising Chair persons in all of Canada, came to show their gratitude and to meet one of the greatest fundraising teams they have raising money for them. Something we can’t stop doing until their really is a cure for Ovarian Cancer. Ovarian Cancer Canada would like to start an outreach support group right here in Clarington as there is none at the moment and one is needed desperately. I would like to help with getting this off the ground for them to move forward with this much needed group!
Avery was impressed by how committed all the ladies that were there today were to this cause and for that I thank all of you once again! I only hope that this years weather did not put anyone off for raising much needed awareness and funds for next year! Yes, there is going to be a next year and I am committed to raising even more funds.
After this year, and having to change venues to Ayren Links Golf, we have different challenges to overcome but Moe and Betty are willing to work with us and help make this even more successful next year so I am sure we can work out the “kinks” and make that happen…I just hope we can count on you to return and maybe even bring your friends. Not many courses will close to other business in order to have a tournament take place on a Sunday, but Moe and Betty did just that and for Charity are willing to take us on again. Keep it in mind…you’ll be hearing more from me as we get closer but remember this…the 6th Annual In The Face of an Angel Golf for Ovarian Cancer will take place in 2016 somewhere in Clarington on MAY 29th and that is the actual date my Mom passes away on what will be her 8th anniversary.
Sandy and Fred Archibald of Archibald’s Estate Winery have offered to let us come back to their location to have our dinner, silent auction and wind up once again…it can’t get much better than that!
The online donation key will remain active and in place on our site so if you can pass the word to everyone you know to donate even a few dollars 2015 could be a banner year for us all involved with the 5th Annual In The Face of an Angel. Can you help make that happen by telling everyone to go to http://inthefaceofanangel.ca and making that donation? Challenge your work colleagues, your family and friends and see who can “beat” who…I dare you!
I will be posting the pictures and updating from this years tournament in a couple of days, once we have worked out all the details, for all of you to enjoy and maybe even chuckle over the antics of your team and others.
Stay tuned…and thanks again for a wonderful day!
Until next time…..
