A firefighter edition of a guitar autographed by Bucky Covington could be all yours this weekend.
The guitar is one of several items people can bid on in a silent auction before Covington and several other country music artists perform at Cousler Park, 1060 Church Road, at noon Sunday.
The country music singer and former "American Idol" contestant will perform songs off his new "Good Guys" album as well as hits off his first album, released in 2007.
Local help: All proceeds from the event, which has been organized by the Manchester Township Career Firefighters Local 3503, will benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
"Everything we raise stays local," said Chris Mowry, a fundraiser organizer and Manchester Township firefighter.
The International Association of Firefighters has been raising money for muscular dystrophy for 60 years and are the largest contributors to the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
"It's our biggest fundraiser," Mowry said.
Lineup: The singing of the national anthem will kick off the event at noon, followed by performances by Lindsey Erin, Brittany Opperman and Kayla Kroh.
Covington will take the stage at 4 p.m., but Mowry advises everyone to arrive early because seating is first-come, first-served.
Winners of the silent auction items will be announced before Covington performs.
In between performances from the different musicians, firefighters will be collecting donations for the "fill the boot" campaign.
The money goes to researching a cure for muscular
dystrophy and supporting families of those with the disease, said Mowry.
Goal: The goal is to raise $3,000, which is the amount needed to cover a week at summer camp for a cabin full of children with muscular dystrophy, Mowry said.
All sales of Covington's CDs will go to a charitable organization called Help the Good Guys that raises funds for injured firefighters and police officers.
There is no ATM on site, so everyone interested in donating should bring cash with them, said Mowry.
Everything will be held rain or shine, and there will also be a bake sale, food vendors, and T-shirts and bracelets for sale.
Parking is limited at Cousler Park, so there will be an overflow lot at the Christian School of York, with a shuttle to transport concert-goers to the park.
