More than £7,000 has been raised for the Danny Jones fund by rugby league fans in Blackpool.
Danny died playing for Keighley Cougars and more than 1,000 people attended his funeral on Friday.
An online funding page has raised over £150,000 for his family, including five-month old twins.
The Summer Bash is a new addition to the Championship calendar and has been introduced as part of the league restructuring.
There were moving scenes today as more than 1,000 people lined the streets of Halifax to pay their last respects to the Keighley Cougars and Wales rugby league star Danny Jones.
Today his widow Lizzie cradled their five month old twins as she led the mourners at her husband's funeral.
The sport came together to honour the 29 year old who suffered a cardiac arrest just minutes into a game earlier this month.
John Shires reports:
The funeral will take place today of Keighley Cougars player Danny Jones.
The 29-year-old died of a rare heart condition after collapsing while playing for the Cougars in London in early May.
Almost £150,000 has been raised by the Rugby League Benevolent Fund for a trust fund for his baby twins since his death.
The Wales international's will be held at St Mary's Church in Halifax.
The wake will follow at Brighouse Rangers ARLFC in Halifax, which his widow, Lizzie, hopes will be a celebration of his life:
Wales are to play Keighley in a fund-raising match for the family of Danny Jones.
John Kear, the Wales head coach, says there has been a "tremendous response" to the concept and that his players have all offered to play without pay.
The match, which still needs ratification from the authorities, will take place at Cougar Park on Sunday, October 25, with funds raised going to the children of Keighley and Wales stand-off Jones, who died 10 days ago of a rare heart condition after collapsing during a League 1 match at London Skolars.
A Just Giving fund set up by the Rugby Football League has so far raised in excess of £124,000, which at the request of Jones' widow Lizzie will go into a trust fund for their five-month-old twins.
Keighley chairman Gary Fawcett says fund-raising will continue to the end of the year in a bid to reach £1million and Kear has confirmed that his Welsh team are keen to play their part.
Jones won the last of his 12 Welsh caps in their final match of the 2013 World Cup, having declined to play in last year's European Cup because his wife was heavily pregnant with the twins.
The funeral of Keighley Cougars ace Danny Jones will take place next week, it has been announced.
It will take place on Friday May 22 at St Mary's Church in Halifax.
The wake will follow at Brighouse Rangers ARLFC in Halifax. It will be a celebration of Danny's life, according to his wife Lizzie.
The wife of Keighley Cougars ace Danny Jones, who died from a heart attack, has requested that all monies raised for the family are put into a special trust fund for their five-month-old twins.
Lizzie Jones wants to help protect Phoebe and Bobby's future using Danny's legacy.
The Just Giving account set up by the RFL Benevolent Fund on behalf of Danny’s family has already raised over £113,000.
Earlier today the club said that it would honour the player's contract with all the money going to the family.
A large crowd has paid tribute to Keighley Cougars player Danny Jones at the club's first home game since his death a week ago. His wife and five-month-old twins were also at today's match, which saw a fund set up in his name boosted by thousands of pounds. Sally Simpson reports.
