All the proceeds and donations from the event will be split between the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh and the city's Department of Public Safety.

Fans will have the chance to play on the field in 7-on-7 competitions, in groups ranging from children to adults. Then, there will be a first responders game and a penalty shootout.
