Former Panthers head coach Ron Rivera has moved to Washington and he didn 8217;t want to bring all the stuff he accumulated over nine seasons in Charlotte with him to his new place.
His solution was to hold a yard sale on Saturday to benefit the Humane Society of Charlotte and it drew a lot of interest from the community. Around 3,000 people showed up and spent more than $30,000 on items, some of which Rivera autographed in what he said was also a chance to say farewell after a long run with the Panthers.
Stephanie Rivera said the idea for the yard sale came from Tammy Reid, who did something similar when Andy Reid was fired by the Eagles after 13 years as their coach.
Great idea & Good cause 8230;.a true win win for everyone. You dont see that too often.
Mr. Rogers goes to Washington.
Great job nice to see good people
Good guy 8230;he did a great job as an assistant with the Chargers, he got Carolina to the Super Bowl, and I hope he can do what the Nationals and Capitals have done in DC 8230;win a championship, and have one epic party, where a million people show up for a parade, and no one get 8217;s killed, injured, arrested, or suffers property damage!
I 8217;d rather see the money go towards needy people than stray pets.
tax write off and why not, he earned it.
People snapped up footballs laying on the grass likely a lot quicker than his QB did in the SB.
How much did he get for the NFC Championship ring?
Just a class act. Good coach too.
you 8217;re the only one then
That 8217;s awesome. Players should do that too. So many charities could be helped. I wish Marvin had done this in cincy.
