SUFFOLK-Hit the golf course Friday and help children with cancer.

Friday, Nov. 8, is the Elizabeth River Landscape Management and Chick-fil-A Golf Classic at Sleepy Hole Golf Course to benefit the Roc Solid Foundation.

Foursomes are available for $400 each, which includes golf fees, carts, door prizes, a goodie bag, breakfast and lunch. After the 2 p.m. lunch, a helicopter 'Cowabunga Ball Drop' will give participants and guests a chance at a million dollar shootout.

All proceeds benefit the Roc Solid Foundation, a Chesapeake-based non-profit organization that provides a number of programs to support children battling cancer, as well as their families. Roc Solid is best known for its Play It Forward program, which has constructed more than 60 playsets for kids fighting cancer throughout the Southeastern U.S.

'My son loves his playground, so to be able to help support the Play It Forward for a child who is fighting the battle of pediatric cancer is very rewarding,' says Jason Fawcett, President of Elizabeth River Landscape Management in Suffolk. 'I am proud of my employees who have been heavily involved in Roc Solid since its inception and continue to support and grow the organization.'

For more information and to register for the golf tournament, go to the tournament Website or call (757) 538-5456.

Roc Solid Foundation was founded in 2009 by pediatric cancer survivor Eric Newman. Roc Solid works with children and their families to provide support and encouragement from diagnosis through treatment and beyond.
