Brian Hart, owner of Frame de Art in Englewood, will be giving away a framed Peyton Manning-signed football jersey to a different local non-profit organization every month in 2013. Hart expects most of the charities to use the jerseys for auctions and other fundraisers. A signed Payton Manning jersey is worth approximately $1,200.
In 22 years of custom work, Hart has framed his business on community outreach and nonprofit giving. For more than a decade, he has been the official framer for the weekly 7News â€śEveryday Heroâ€ť awards. He also donates his services annually to the Race for the Cure breastcancer fundraiser, among other nonprofit events.
â€śThis is a big commitment, but I wanted to show that as a small business we can make a difference,â€ť Hart said.
The store will announce a new locally based recipient on the 15th of each month.
