On Saturday, new Redskins coach Ron Rivera and his wife, Stephanie, held a yard sale at the Humane Society of Charlotte, where they raised more than $30,000 toward a new campus and research facility for one of their favorite charities in the city.
According to ESPN, around 3,000 people stood in line and took advantage of the opportunity to purchase Rivera’s old items. Countless T-shirts Rivera had made with inspirational and promotional slogans were on sale, as were the military paraphernalia he acquired working with the USO of North Carolina and the shoes he wore on the sidelines.
Items from his first win in 2011, first playoff win in 2014 and win in London this past season were also up for purchase.
“This is kind of our swan song, our last opportunity to really say thank you one more time,” Rivera told ESPN.
