WRFC President Jamie Gniadek was not surprised by the offer of the New York firefighters to play in the April game.
The WRFC received approval from the Worcester Fire Department before scheduling the fundraiser.
John McCluskey sprained an ankle the week before the game 10 years ago and had to watch from the stands, but he plans to play for the WRFC in April.
Lionel Berthiaume, a volunteer firefighter in Paxton, is also scheduled to play for WRFC.

The early game between the Wanderers' social squad and a collection of WRFC's "old boys" and second-teamers was closer, with the locals dropping the match, 10-5.
Turgeon said his club will remember valuable growing moments such as when former WRFC U-19 and current first-teamer Paul DiStefano carried the ball from his own try area to midfield during the second half.
The most important memory WRFC will take from the match came at the conclusion when the crowd of several hundred cheered both sides' efforts, and the opposing players shook hands, ready to go out, celebrate together and form new friends.
Much of the WRFC these days is an up-and-coming collection of players who picked up the game in college, but the first-team squad also includes players from England, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and France who have come together and formed a tight group.
