New location for Cheryl Wyrick’s charity yard sale

SALISBURY — Organizers preparing a charity yard sale for cancer-stricken Cheryl Wyrick have moved the benefit location to Southside Baptist Church just off Jake Alexander Boulevard.

Hilda Goodman, a friend and event organizer, said she’s moving Saturday’s event due to a prediction of bad weather. Goodman said she’s afraid the weather could ruin donated items.

Earlier this week doctors told Cheryl Wyrick she had about six weeks to live. Wyrick has stage-four cancer and a failing liver.

Wyrick’s last wish was to take a trip to Disney World with her family.

The new location is at the 500 block of Morlan Park Road near the intersection at Jake Alexander Boulevard.

The items will be housed in the church’s fellowship hall.

Organizers said the yard sale will remain open from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. It was previously to be held at Dairy Queen on West Innes Street.
