The two IGAF partner firms making this wager are Kolb+Co., a Brookfield, Wisconsin-based public accounting firm, and Schneider Downs, Pittsburgh's largest independent public accounting firm. Each company will come together in a team spirit day, where employees can support their team through casual dress when they make a $5 donation. Once the Super Bowl has been decided, all proceeds will be donated to the winning company’s charity. Both firms are planning to match the employee contributions to raise the stakes.
