Dubbo Photo News - - Charity Day - By KEN SMITH

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.
