Humane Society of Charlotte Hosts Rivera-Panthers Yard Sale
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Humane Society of Charlotte (HSC) is hosting a Panthers Gear Yard Sale, courtesy of Stephanie and Coach Ron Rivera, former head coach of the Carolina Panthers.
HSC graciously accepted a massive donation of Panthers gear directly from the Riveras private collection. Ron and Stephanie will join HSC on Saturday, February 15 from 12 – 3 pm at the Humane Society of Charlotte to take photos and sign autographs for shoppers.
“The Rivera family has been an invaluable partner to HSC over the last 9 years,” said Donna Stucker, VP of Philanthropy. “We’re sad to see them go, but are excited for their family’s new adventure and thankful for their help raising donations for HSC and serving as honorary chairpersons for the We Are Family Capital Campaign.”
Items available include men’s and women’s Panthers apparel. New and gently used items include items from the Rivera’s personal collection, as well as items from coaches and players along with limited edition Panthers memorabilia.
HSC is unable to guarantee what items and which players will be featured, but there are sure to be some rare finds! Up to two items are able to be autographed by the Riveras in lieu of a $5 donation to the Humane Society of Charlotte.
During their time in Charlotte, Stephanie and Coach Ron Rivera were ardent supporters of the Humane Society of Charlotte for nearly a decade. In September 2019, the first family of Panthers football began serving as Honorary Chairpersons of the We Are Family Capital Campaign and helped kick off the public phase of the campaign.
The We Are Family Campaign is an effort by the Humane Society of Charlotte to raise funds to build a new, state-of-the-art animal resource center to serve the city of Charlotte and the surrounding community. Donations are current hovering around 11 million dollars, with 3 million left to raise until construction can begin. Proceeds of the sale will benefit the We Are Family Capital Campaign.
For the safety of all patrons, pets are not permitted at this event.
