Cooper’s Benefit




The Green Room in Temple, Texas saw a packed house on Saturday, December 5, at their fundraiser to benefit a little boy who suffers from neuroblastoma…….brain cancer.  “Cooper” is 3 yrs old and his parents are in their early twenties, in financial strains, trying to take care of their little boy who is undergoing chemo with only a 30% chance to live.  The fundraiser accumulated $6500 to benefit the family including $2300 from Mr. James Barnett who matched the silent auction sales. We want to thank everyone who participated in this event, including Pool & Billiard Magazine, Poison Cues, Inside Pool, the WPBA, touring pro Kim White, and Ted & Sheryl Sofge owners of the Green Room.

Many people turned out to help support this worthy cause, including KCEN TV in Eddie, Texas who took a few shots of Cooper when he visited his own benefit to show us what heart and determination was all about. Not a hair on his head, with a smile on his face, he pocketed pool balls by hand as the camera man rolled. It was a good day.

We would like to thank all of those who gave their time, money and a little bit of themselves to help a little boy in need.

God Bless you all.

Cooper Needs Your Help!




Cooper is a 3 yr. old little boy who has been diagnosed with neuroblastoma…..cancer.  He has been given a 30% chance to live, even after extensive chemotherapy treatments. His parents need help paying for his medical care.  I was asked a couple of weeks ago by OB1 Tour Player, Kim Pierce, if I would make the 4 hour trek to the Green Room in Temple, Texas to help with a benefit for Cooper. Of course, I could not say no.

There will be a benefit pool tournament, silent auction, raffles, and a challenge the pro table. The Women’s Professional Billiard Association (  players have kindly offered to donate billiards memorabilia as well as the PREDATOR GROUP ( and Pool & Billiards Magazine ( .

The charity event will be December 5th starting at 12pm until close. Please join us if you can, if not, please send any donations to the following address:
