What would it take to get the self-proclaimed number one Pittsburgh Steelers fan into a Dallas Cowboys jersey?

SAINT LAWRENCE, Pa. -

What would it take to get the self-proclaimed number one Pittsburgh Steelers fan into a Dallas Cowboys jersey? How about $20,000?

Ron Kratofil, the CEO of Goodwill Keystone Area in Saint Lawrence, had to wear a Cowboys jersey all day, even though he's a Steelers fan.

Goodwill employees donated more than $20,000 to the company's mission. With each donation, employees got to vote for which NFL jersey the CEO would wear for a day.

"Being born and raised in Pittsburgh, naturally I'm a Steeler fan. I put out a couple pleas for Steelers nation to rescue me, but here I stand in a Dallas Cowboys jersey," said Kratofil, who used his own money to buy the jersey.

Goodwill helps people with disabilities become independent.
