The Jewish Association on Aging (JAA) takes health precautions to heart when it hosts its annual Art of Aging benefit, a drive-in where guests enjoy a live performance on a big screen from the comfort of their own vehicles.

Safely distanced parking and bring-your-own lawn chairs are encouraged. Drive-in style food and soft drinks are provided to all guests. In the spirit of a Heinz Field tailgate party and per Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board regulations, BYOB for guests 21 and older.
