Despite the weather, the show had to go on and live music was brought downtown.
It was rock, reggae, and relief delivered to restaurants and their staff that have been hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Restaurants are the cornerstone of our communities,” said Lucas Piatt of the Piatt Family Foundation. “They make our neighborhoods special and unique, and Pittsburgh has had such a wonderful restaurant renaissance over the years that we need to bring it back and keep it going.”

He said the Piatt Family Foundation also wants to help reforge downtown and tackle food shortages.
“It will also take care of the food insecurity that happens here like food waste,” he said. “It’s incredible to believe that 40 percent of our food here in the US is wasted.”
In rain or shine, the fight for a good cause continued with music and festivities.
