Jack Newton to be special guest at MJD for CJD day
LEGENDARY golfer Jack Newton will be the special guest at the “MJD for CJD” charity event next week in Dubbo.
Maureen Dempsey and family have organised a full day of golf and an afternoon and evening of entertainment with fantastic auction items. What a day this is going to be!
“MJD for CJD” stands for “Michael John Dempsey for Creutzfeldtjakob Disease”, and the Charity Day is to raise money for research to find a cure for this rare brain disease and to help other families going through the CJD experience.
Because no effective treatment exists, the focus is on alleviating pain and relieving symptoms.
Jack Newton will be attending and you can bid for the chance to play golf with him at 10.30am.
One of the day’s many highlights includes a “Hole in One” competition with the prize being a 2019 Toyota Corolla Ascent Sport, including on roads, valued at approximately $28,000, thanks to David Hayes and Dubbo City Toyota.
There’s an incredible array of exclusive items up for grabs across the day and evening, including an original artwork by Kyah Wilson, exquisite jewellery pieces, signed NRL team jerseys including a signed 1995 Australian Tour Squad jersey, and your chance to bid on a “NRL VIP Experience” for 18 people to attend the Bulldogs v Brisbane Broncos clash at Sydney Stadium in a private suite for you and your guests.
The “MJD for CJD” Charity Day is on Friday, August 9, at the Dubbo Golf Club.

Applications close Monday, September 30, 2019. To deal with congestion in the heart of Cairo, engineers came up with a novel solution: build a record-breaking bridge. Easing the traffic problems in Egypt’s capital, the Tahya Misr (Long Live Egypt) Bridge is now the world’s
widest cable-stayed bridge.
The Guinness World Record was officially achieved with the help of 4000 engineers, technicians and workers who had to build something wider than the 65-metre-wide Port Mann Bridge in Canada. This was achieved with the Tahya Misr measuring 67.3 metres.
