Well things are moving right along for our 4th Annual In The Face of an Angel Golf for Ovarian Cancer Research and Outreach programs. Sponsors are coming on board and prizes, silent auction items are being collected now so we will not be rushing around at the last minute but will be more organized than ever! Our Caterer, Dee’s Harvest Table, is busy making up our menu and I know it will be as delicious as ever! If you’ve never had Dee’s delicious meals with those fantastic desserts, you don’t know what you are missing!
Prepping for 4th Annual In The Face of an Angel Golf for Ovarian Cancer
The registrations are coming in and we are half full already, I suspect that these women who have registered already are out with their clubs getting in their first swings in order to be ready for that first tee! I myself will have to dust mine off first as they have been stored all winter and I have not got much time to golf and certainly won’t have before May 25th! I just hope I can at least make a decent showing on the first tee off. 🙂
Ovarian Cancer Canada has once again committed to coming and they are just as excited as we are. They will be once again sending a representative to join us. The link to donate online is live and can be found through our website www,inthefaceofanangel.ca, so Please, if you can’t join us, donate, as Ovarian Cancer is women’s #1 killer and it is a silent killer that without proper screening can’t be detected. Most times when it is, it has already made progress.
Anyway, I hope you can join us…there is still room so gather up your gal pals and put together those plans for that fun afternoon on May 25th and join us at Archibald’s Cider House Golf Club. If you want to register go to our website at http://www.inthefaceofanangel.ca and download the registration form, fill it out and email it back to me or send it to me by post. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
Until then…be kind to one another!

To the volunteers that helped out organizing and making sure it went well, I thank you! You all know who you are. Willie and Ron, what can I say…without you both the day would not have been complete……….and to all those special “Angels” who donated online to “In The Face Of An Angel” through my “In the Face of an Angel” website to help in the fight against Ovarian Cancer…GOD BLESS YOU!!!
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!
