Rug Sale Fundraiser Benefits Children Facing Health-Care Hardships
The Ricky King Fund of Southwest Florida is holding a rug sale fundraiser Saturday in Naples to help address the medical needs of children who are facing health-care hardships. A local retailer, Designers’ Rug Center, has donated 70 rugs in many styles and shapes for the event valued at $35,000. The rug sale will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in front of the Trianon Centre building at the intersection of U.S. 41 and Park Shore Drive. The Ricky King Children’s Fund was established in 1978 by the family and friends of 4-year-old Ricky King, who died of Reye’s syndrome. Ricky’s father was the late Rich King, a long-time local radio personality. The mission of the fund is to provide an avenue for individuals, corporations and organizations to support the unmet medical needs of children in the region and to improve the quality of their lives.
