Buffalo shop selling streaker shirts for charity
Buffalo, N.Y. (WHAM) - The 15 minutes of fame for a Buffalo Bills fan in the buff may be a little longer than 15 minutes.
Park Avenue Imprints, a screenprinting and apparel company in Buffalo, is selling apparel in the outline for Tristan Lambright, the man who streaked across New Era Field on Sunday.
The 29-year-old Cheektowaga man, was arrested after Sunday's Bills game.
Paul Roorda, owner of Park Avenue Imprints, said a couple of friends on Facebook gave him the idea to create the design for the shirts and hoodies.
Roorda said he put the design up on their website Monday evening. In less than 24 hours, the shop has sold nearly 100 shirts. He added that he spoke with Lambright about the design, who was glad to see a charity donation as part of the sales.
Five dollars from each t-shirt and hoodie sold by Park Avenue Imprints will be used to buy winter clothing items for the Buffalo City Mission.
This is not the first time the shop has designed a t-shirt as a fundraiser.
When Officer Craig Lehner died last month, the shop decided to create a shirt memorializing the officer.
Sales exploded, bringing thousands of dollars in. Park Avenue Imprints donated 100 percent of the profits for the Officer Lehner shirt to the Lehner family.
