During the event, each family that attended received a pack of sports equipment and got to enjoy playing games before the movie started, per the outlet.

The party at the drive-in movie theater was just one of several events the Buffalo Bills player hosted in the area with the help of his non-profit organization, The Playmakers.

In addition to being named MVP, the NFLPA will also donate $10,000 to the Bill’s player’s organization and have helped start a crowdfunding campaign to raise more money for the non-profit.
