The "Shoot For A Cure" pool tournament was held Saturday, raising money for cancer research.

The League Room hosted nearly 40 billiards players, some of whom are currently battling the disease.

There was also a raffle.

Over 30 prizes were donated, including one from former world number one, Jeanette Lee, AKA "The Black Widow".

The tournament originated when a cancer survivor came up with the idea and asked the League Room to play host.

The pool hall says they'll give all proceeds to those who need it most.

"We are going to donate all the money raised to cancer centers across Ohio between the Strecker Cancer Center in Marietta and Belpre and the James Center in Columbus we're going to distribute the money between those cancer centers, says Chris Wilson, owner of The League Room.
