John Higgins is one of three top professionals who will cue up to help Fareham Snooker Club celebrate its 30th birthday.
The four-time world champion will be joined by Barry Hawkins and Joe Perry for the charity exhibition evening on Friday, January 13.
All the proceeds from the £25 ticket sales and the raffle will be donated to Breast Cancer Care and The Rocky Appeal at the Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth.
Serena Sinanan, was diagnosed with breast cancer in October, 2015.
Serena’s treatment, is due to be completed next month, and she wanted to “give something back to the hospital” for all the excellent treatment and support she received from the QA over the past 17 months.
Miki and Serena opened the club on January 9, 1987. A fire in October, 2003, closed the club for three months and it was re-opened on its 17th birthday by Jimmy White and BBC commentator John Virgo.
Raffle prizes donated by suppliers include three cases of beer and three bottles of champagne from Fuller’s Brewery and signed cues from Trevor Sanders Snooker & Pool Table services a TV donated by Dransfield Fruit machines and many more.
There will be a secret ballot of bids to take on one of the professionals in a frame.
