MJD Foundation

Golf Fundraiser

On Saturday 24th September, the Alyangula Golf Club held a golf fundraiser for the MJDF on Groote Eylandt. The MJDF team was made up of: Simon, Jill, Nick and Mogs and everyone had a fantastic day. Jill played extremely well and got the others out of a hole a few times! The other teams were all regular players and showed great patience whilst waiting for our team to take their shots. There were many laughs and support throughout the whole day.

Once the golf was completed an auction was held in the evening at the Golf Club. The day raised an amazing $20,000. This is a phenomenal outcome with enough money to purchase and install a "Turny" (a front seat that swivels out of the vehicle to improve disability accessibility) to our vehicle on Groote Eylandt, plus to fund some additional equipment to improve our clients' ability to access their community. During the evening Gayangwa and Bakala held a question and answer session about MJD with the audience, this was very insightful for everyone.
