The event is to be held at the Wynberg Boy's high school, with speakers to include former South African cricketer Allan Donald, and Tim Noakes of the Sport Science Institute of South Africa with whom Woolmer co-authored a book on the art and science of cricket.
"The service will be led by Reverend Jerome Francis who was coached by Bob from the age of 11," said a statement issued on behalf of Woolmer's family.
There will be a separate designated area for close friends of the Woolmer family who live in the Cape Town area.
Woolmer, also a former coach of South Africa, was found strangled in his Jamaican hotel room on March 18, one day after Pakistan were dramatically ousted from the cricket World Cup following a shock defeat to minnows Ireland.
The killing has sparked one of the most complex murder investigations in Jamaican history and has triggered speculation about possible links to match-fixing and illegal betting in cricket.
Around 50 officers are attempting to track down hundreds of potential witnesses who were either visiting or staying at Kingston's Pegasus Hotel in the days leading up to Woolmer's death.
