Juju Smith-Schuster says goodbye to Pittsburgh with one last charity event in the city – WPXI

PITTSBURGH — Fans had the opportunity to donate to charity and say goodbye to JuJu Smith-Schuster during the wide receiver’s “Final Farewell to Pittsburgh Fundraiser.”

The event took place at Terminal in the Strip District of Pittsburgh. Guests paid $20 for a ticket and received merchandise, an autograph from the athlete and a photo with him.

The money raised during the fundraiser will be donated to four different charities. Smith-Schuster will donate proceeds to Paws Across Pittsburgh Animal Rescue, the Miracle League of the South Hills, Vintage and the Magee-Womens Research Institute.

“It all happened so fast and I never really had time to say goodbye. It’s kind of like my leaving, goodbye,” Smith-Schuster said.

In March, Smith-Schuster announced he would be leaving the Pittsburgh Steelers to play for the Kansas City Chiefs.
