Muskegon, MI – On May 11, Muskegon will host a billiards superstar at a benefit Tournament at The Break Room Billiards. Billiards champion Dennis Hatch “The Hatchet Man”, along with Top Shots author Steven Gifford, will appear at the “Billiards Against Abuse” Benefit Tourney hosted by The Break Room Billiards in Muskegon.


The Break Room Billiards, which opened in 2018, is located at 1447 W. Sherman Blvd., Suite B, in Muskegon, and is hosting the fundraiser event to benefit Every Woman’s Place, a shelter for victims and survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking, located at 1221 Laketon Avenue in Muskegon. “Sixty percent of proceeds will go to EWP,” said the owner of The Break Room.


Registration for the all-day tournament begins at 12:30 pm on May 11, 2019. Tournament start is 1:30 pm, with a $35.00 entry fee, which includes green fees. “It will be an 8-ball tourney, race to five on winner’s side, race to three on loser’s side,” explained the tournament organizer.


“A big highlight of the tournament is the 9-foot Diamond challenge against Dennis Hatch, race to three, for only $20.00.”


“We hope to make this tournament an annual event,” he added.


Local sponsors Muskegon Area Pool Players and The Holiday Inn Muskegon, in addition to JB Custom Cases, Diamond Billiard Products, and Seybert’s Billiard Supply have joined to provide support for this event. A custom JB Cases cue case will be raffled off as part of the fundraising efforts. Raffle tickets for the custom case are available now at The Break Room Billiards and at Every Woman’s Place.


“On behalf of everyone at Every Woman’s Place, we are excited to be partnering with a local Muskegon business and grateful for the support it means to our organization,” said Elisa Hopper, Development Director of EWP. “We’re looking forward to seeing our community come out and enjoy the action of a billiards tournament. “We anticipate a great turnout for this event, and hope to draw new fans to the sport of billiards, as well as bring new supporters of EWP’s efforts to assist women and their families in crisis in our community.”
