Tag Archives: #In The Face of an Angel

Hello Ladies! 

I need to point out that this years tournament has a cut off date of May 7th for anyone to register to play! Please get your registrations in early to avoid disappointment! There can be no exceptions to this as I have to totally commit to Pebblestone Golf and will not be allowed to alter the numbers past this date. As you know it’s easier than ever this year by e-transferring your registration fee to Check out the website for the link. Don’t forget to tell your neighbours and friends to donate online. The Donation Page is set up through Ovarian Cancer Canada and is totally secure. Please encourage them to be generous. Ovarian Cancer Canada will send the receipt directly to the donor for income tax purposes.

I look forward to hitting the links and raising funds for Ovarian Cancer Canada for the Outreach and Research Programs. We are definitely making a difference! You can be so proud of that!

Well Ladies we have done it again! The 5th Annual In The Face of an Angel has had another successful year! We have hit the $8,000 mark and I hope that the online donations will continue to come in. Thank you to all who have donated, sponsored and played in this great little tournament in memory of my Mom, Bernice. Mom would be so proud to see this tournament building every year and all proceeds going to Ovarian Cancer Canada for the Research and Outreach as they are doing. Ovarian Cancer Canada tells me, we are the little tournament that could and has come through for them every year!

For without you this tournament would not exist! Thank you does not seem like it will ever be enough!

Surprising to me was our pair of BOOTS&HEARTS tickets for the Country Show coming up in August this year did not sell so we decided to put them out there for a bid from the public with all monies going directly to Ovarian Cancer Canada. This was a value of $598.00 and through the efforts of a great friend they sold for $450! Everyone wins! Ovarian Cancer and Kelli Ann Edgar and Michael Holmes who I am sure will really have a blast! Thank you Kelli Ann and Michael!!

The weather this year was rough to say the least! It was cold and drizzly like an early November day as the pix will show…the ladies were troopers though and of the 46 signed to play, 39  ended up golfing…those were the hearty ones, the real troopers! Moe and Betty, owners of Ayren Links Golf were real sports as Moe took over the putting contest spot when Councillor Woo had to leave for another event and Councillor Hooper stood out in the rain while the ladies, protected under their golf carts competed in the chipping contest.What a trooper Ron is! Even giving them pointers to help them out.

Volunteers! Wow what can I say about my volunteers?  Donna Metcalf Woo on the registration table had a few glitches but sorted the golfers out and everyone got off to a great and Tim Bit in hand!

Karin Cashin on the refreshment station cut up all our snacks, like a good Mom would,  so we could grab and go as she provided our water along with fruit, two-bite brownies and fruit loaf spending her time outside altho under the patio, I am sure she was still cold!

Lisa Roy, our photographer, bombed around in a golf cart, taking pictures of the ladies at every turn. I bet she wished she had had windshield wipers on that cart she was driving! We’ve got some good shots in spite of the weather too!

Back at Archibald’s Winery, where Fred and Sandy Archibald were so generous to donate their facility for the “after golfing” event, were Sandy, Pat, Kris, Donna, Lisa, Sandy and Fred were busy setting up the silent auction items and the tables for the meal while Dee’s Harvest Table were busy setting up the food for the cold and hungry ladies as they came in to continue the festivities. Once again, Dee’s hot buffet was a knock out! Fantastic food and unbelievable dessert! Thanks to Diana and her team!

A special Thank You to Vicki Cowle, who stayed to help us do the clean up and after a long day that extra pair of hands was worth more than we can ever say! Thanks Vicki!

All in all it was a great day! We raised so far just over $8,000 with a couple of outstanding items I am still hoping to sell. I have a load of Grade A Gravel from Dufferin Aggregates that they will deliver anywhere in Clarington that would be great for someones driveway or to fill in where you need it in your existing driveway. It is worth $600 so a good bid and it will be yours!

And to the winning team who this year were Althea Chaffey, Cindy Dekking, Eudora Nesbitt and Debbie Dunham with a best ball score or 34…great job ladies! I’ll do my best to get the trophies engraved and to you before we tee off next year! I promise!2015 In The Face of an Angel Golf for Ovarian Cancer 386

Avery Morris joined us from Ovarian Cancer Canada for the meal and prize presentations before she had to head back to Toronto to tell everyone back at “headquarters” just how great our “In The Face of an Angel” Golf for Ovarian Cancer Tournament is! Avery, thanks for coming and we hope you enjoyed your time with us! Hope we see you back next year!

2015 In The Face of an Angel Golf for Ovarian Cancer 378The Online Donations will be left open through the website and monitored by Ovarian Cancer Canada so please feel free to have your friends, family and neighbours donate online. Wouldn’t it be great if we could close out the year with a $10,000 donation!

So ladies, thank you once again for being there! You are really true friends and troopers to have come and played in what was definitely not our best year for weather. Mother Nature’s wrath did not deter us, for we are a group that is undeterable! Hope to see you May 29, 2016!



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

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 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!



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 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.

See you on the course…





Hello Ladies!In The Face of An Angel Golf Tournament

Here we are gearing up for our 5th Annual “In The Face of an Angel” Golf for Ovarian Cancer! Over the past 4 years we have raised $39,150 and that is just amazing for our little golf tournament of just 44 women! We truly are on a mission to help eradicate this disease!

As you are all aware by now, Cider House Golf Course has been permanently closed and we have had to look for another course to play on that is local and easy to get to, that would help us to keep our expenses down in order to enable us to send as much as we possibly could to Ovarian Cancer. This year we will be hosting our event at Ayren Links Golf Course, 5210 Bethesda Road, Bowmanville.

Ayren Links Promo PhotoAyren Links is located East of Liberty St., Bowmanville on the north side of Taunton Road. You can’t miss it and we will be playing the front 9! Everyone will have a cart and it will be great fun        just getting from one hole to another!

In the past 4 years we have been able to get started by 11:00 am but this year we have a little later start at 11:30 in order to let the regular weekend golfers get out ahead of us. Unlike Cider House, we will have to share this course with others so hence the later start. Moe assures me we will all be finished and back to the clubhouse in about 1.5 hours and ready to get to the lunch and silent auction events so please don’t anyone worry as we will have a wonderful time and I look forward to raising tons of money for our CAUSE…

We’re starting a new Chapter with our 5th Annual In The Face of an Angel being played in a different location but we will be making more fun, fond memories! So gather your girlfriends, your Sisters, your Mothers, your Aunts and your nieces and your Grandmothers and join us for this fantastic tournament once again this year2015FOAFinit2 (1)


You can contact me through my blog at or my email at for more details….so dust off those clubs and practice those swings for it won’t be long before May 31st right here! Get signed up early…you won’t want to be disappointed!

I look forward to hearing from you soon! Cheers!

My team and I are working hard gathering sponsors and silent auction items for the most special tournament I will play in this season. I guess some might say, I am a little biased. However, things are coming together and looking like this will be another fantastic day at Cider House Golf Course  for “In The Face of an Angel” Golf for Ovarian Cancer in memory of my Mom.
We’re so excited about these tickets from Boots & Hearts we asked for clarification and here is what these tickets will get you….this is almost unbelievable…too good to be true! These tickets will get you access to the Premium Area which include a number of amenities including complimentary snacks, lounge areas, complimentary mini-massages, private bathrooms, bullpen access to front of stage and premium viewing areas to the main stage.
Food vendors and bar service will be provided on a cash basis in this area and these stations are only available to those with premium passes so line-ups will be nominal.
Just to clarify, and put this into perspective, the value of $1,300 is for a pair of Premium Tickets and General Admission tickets sold out at the price point of $269.99 plus taxes and services per ticket, so a more accurate comparison in costs is a pair of General Admission tickets at approximately $650 in value to a pair of Premium tickets at $1,300.
 Currently on kijji one general admission ticket is being sold by others as high as $800 per ticket so using them as part of our silent auction we hope they will generate a great donation to In The Face of an Angel Golf for Ovarian Cancer! How great would that be!  And just think, you ladies can help make this happen! What a great feeling would be eh? Smiles all around!
Registration has now opened up as we have a few more spots left so let your friends know what a great time they will have, what great prizes they will receive and what great silent auction items are up for grabs!
We are on the eve of one month to go and counting…excitement is building ….get those clubs out ladies, it’s almost tee time!!

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!

Below is Marie, Jackie and Dee herself at last years event!Prepping for 4th Annual In The Face of an Angel Golf for Ovarian Cancer

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,, 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 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!
