SNOOKER players are ready for a marathon of a tournament this weekend as the Bomaderry Bowling Snooker Club Cancer Fund-raising Marathon takes place at the Bomaderry Bowling Club.
Two snooker tables will be set up in the club’s “basement” for players to fight it out over 27.5 hours.
All money raised will go towards assisting cancer patients and their families.
The event kicks off on Saturday and is open for anyone to enter with the $20 entry fee donated to cancer patients and their families.
The marathon will begin at 8.30 Saturday morning and run until midnight, and restart on Sunday at 8.30am and run until 8.30pm.
New shirts have been purchased for the event to promote cancer awareness.
“Our new shirts have a pink ribbon on the front and different coloured ribbons on the back to show we are raising money for all types of cancer,’ event organiser Dave Smith said.
“The competition is meant to be a fun event, so hopefully the more people who enter the more funds we can raise. We are already expecting a lot of people from all around NSW to come.”
Trophies and participation medallions have been donated for the marathon, along with $2000 from local businesses.
