Rock Commercial Real Estate is sponsoring the eighth annual John Buchart Golf Classic for MDA on Thursday at Cool Creek Golf Club in Wrightsville.

Through the event, Rock pays tribute to John Buchart, who passed away from ALS - or Lou Gehrig's disease - in 2005. Proceeds will support research for a disease that is affecting an increasing number of people.

The seventh annual Golf Classic raised more than $36,000 for ALS research, bringing the total to date over $268,968.

Spaces are available for participation with five different golfer packages to choose from. Registration begins at 10 a.m. and tee time (shotgun start) will begin at noon.

For more information, to register for the tournament or to donate a door prize, call MDA's Lancaster District Office at (717) 293-0685.
