A great opportunity to help a great cause.

At Nichols, we’re always happy to help a great cause.

Recently, our Sales Rep Chris Breiler put Nichols in a position to do some good for the Jarrett Payton foundation.

Started by the son of Chicago Bears legend Walter Payton, the Jarrett Payton Foundation is committed to positively impacting the lives of children and adolescents physically, emotionally, and psychologically by creating and providing programs that present them with a wide variety of opportunities specifically designed to develop their leadership skills and enrich their lives.

Chris became involved with the Jarrett Payton Foundation last year when he donated his time and talent to create a painting of Walter Payton for the silent auction at their annual Golf Outing, a day of golf, games, fun and entertainment. All of the proceeds help to fund the two core JPF programs – Project: No Bull (anti-bullying campaign) and the Jarrett Payton Leadership Academy.

The painting was so well received (one of the highest selling items at the auction) that they invited him to do another one for the 2015 event, but this year he decided to do something a bit different. Chris offered to help them out with a Nichols nLite to welcome people to the event and recognize the Foundation’s lead sponsor. Nichols also donated a beautiful framed panoramic image of Soldier Field for their silent auction. This piece utilized our nGallery wall-mounted frame – it accepts silicone-edged fabric graphics to create a clean, contemporary look that places all the attention on the image.

The feedback was great, but more importantly, we were glad to be able to contribute to a fantastic cause. Thanks to JPF for having Chris and Nichols as a part of your event. We’ll be excited to help again next year!

We’re with you, every step of the way.

Team Nichols
