A Beautiful Woman 2018 Wrap Up

A beautiful woman is hardworking, determined, and knows her value. She is especially kind and caring, and often puts others before herself. You can count on her for almost anything. She is truly beautiful inside and out.

We are so thrilled with how our A Beautiful Woman with the WHL and OHL turned out this season. Through our efforts we were able to honour 8 beautiful billet moms with an on ice ceremony where we awarded them flowers and a gift basket full of Chatters products.

We want to thank Alyson, Gord and Allison from the WHL, and Kyle and Justin from the OHL, along with everyone else that contributed to this initiative. Here are some of the beautiful women we recognized:


Teresa Berdusco Edmonton Oil Kings

Ally Whittingham Kootenay Ice

Finding a new family to billet with after a trade can always be a weird experience, but for Kootenay ICE forward Colton Veloso, it’s a good thing Ally Whittingham was there. Veloso got to join the family dynamic that included two of Ally’s own children who are just beginning their respective minor hockey careers. Click here to view her story.

Amber Scott Medicine Hat Tigers

A billet for the past three seasons with the Medicine Hat Tigers, Amber currently has opened her home to Tigers forward James Hamblin. “Especially with the passing of my own mother, she’s really stepped into kind of that role. She’s been someone that I can always turn to, someone I can always talk to and look up to and just that great character.” – Medicine Hat Tigers forward James Hamblin. Click here to view her story.

Janice Roberts Prince George Cougars

A billet for the past decade in northern British Columbia, Janice most recently served as a billet mother to Prince George Cougars forward Jared Bethune. “Just being there for me as a mom figure.

Jodie Porteous

A billet for the past five years, Jodie has currently opened her home to Vancouver Giants forward Dawson Holt. “I always think that I have two moms that love me very much. I think a big thing with her is she obviously had a sports background. She always has a feel for what I’m feeling and she knows the way sports are and how hard it can be sometimes. She’s always there to support me and help me along the way.” –Vancouver Giants forward Dawson Holt. Click here to view her story.

Kim Taylor London Knights

Joseph Raaymaker is Kim’s seventh player and their family is showing no signs of stopping any time soon. She’s always sure to have Joseph’s favourite brownies made fresh every week. “Ever since I got traded here she’s been very kind and caring and taken care of me as far as feeding me pregame and other meals every single day, taking care of my laundry, and cleaning my room as well.” –London Knights forward Joseph Raaymaker

Tanya Garrah Kingston Frontenacs

Ted Nichols was Tanya’s first billet four years ago and he has comfortably enjoyed living with the Garrah’s ever since.
