U. S. Steel's Party on the Plaza to benefit the United Way begins today at 11:00 a.m. The game booths, silent auction tables and vendors will officially open at that time. Other events taking place during the 11:00 hour include four local celebrities who will be available at the Celebrity Booth for photographs and autographs: Pittsburgh Steelers alumni Randy Grossman and Edmund Nelson; and Stan Savran and Guy Junker from Fox Sports. A special raffle for U. S. Steel retirees will be held at 11:30 a.m. at the Retiree Booth. At 11:45 a.m., the U. S. Steel Talent Team will sing "America the Beautiful."

At noon, the Pittsburgh Steelers will launch their pep rally on the fountain area of the U. S. Steel Tower plaza. One partygoer's ticket will be picked at a random drawing at precisely 12:05 p.m. for a chance to participate in the Million Dollar Football Toss contest. The qualifying rounds for the Football Toss begin at 12:15 p.m. The one contestant who makes it to the Final Toss will throw for the million dollars - $500,000 for the winner and $500,000 to the United Way of Allegheny County Impact Fund - at 12:50 p.m. Two more retiree raffles will take place during the hour, one at 12:15 p.m. and the other at 12:45 p.m., at the Retiree Booth.

At 1:00 p.m., former Pittsburgh Steeler Louis Lipps will be available for photographs and autographs at the Celebrity Booth. At 1:30 p.m., the final retiree raffle will be held at the Retiree Booth.

The Silent Auction Table will close at 2:00 p.m. Three raffles will be held during the 2:00 hour: the Employee Video Prize Drawing; the Kickoff Party Prize Drawing; and the 50/50 Drawing. The party will conclude at 3:00 p.m. with the presentation of the Behind Steel Bars Award.
