Yard sale to benefit Rivette

Family and friends of Katie Rivette are holding a benefit yard sale this weekend at the Whitehall Stewart’s shop to help defray expenses of a second kidney transplant.

Katie was in renal failure at eight months old and was on dialysis until she was 23 months old when she received a kidney transplant from her mom. That was 24 years ago and she now needs a second transplant, which will happen in New York City at Columbia Hospital. All benefits from this yard sale will help defray travel and lodging expenses during her and her family’s stay in New York.

Katie is the daughter of Virginia Rivette, president of the Whitehall Board of Education and George Rivette, a member of American Legion Post 83 and the Whitehall Volunteer Fire Company.

The sale will be held on Saturday and Sunday Aug. 10 and 11.
