New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck will raise money for his literacy charity through a billiards tournament in New York City on Thursday, June 2.

Held for the third year at Slate NYC, a billiards club in Chelsea, Tuck's event in the past has drawn celebrities such as Spike Lee, Vivica A. Fox, Paul Sorvino, John Legend, John Starks, Kelly Rowland, Earl The Pearl Monroe, Chubb Rock, Eli Manning and Big Daddy Kane.

The tournament features 32 two-person teams pre-paired in a single elimination 8-ball challenge. The proceeds will go to R.U.S.H. for Literacy, Tuck's charity that focuses on increasing literacy in New York and Central Alabama, where the football player was born.
