On Saturday, June 16, and Sunday, June 17, the family and friends of a 3-year-old local boy, Bentley, will have a multi-family yard sale complete with breakfast tacos, coffee, soda, baked goods and other items. The yard sale will have items including clothes of all sizes, toys, household items, and baby items.

The sale will take place at 305 Travis St in Kerrville on Saturday, June 16, at 7 AM until “?” and on Sunday, June 17, beginning at 9 AM until “?”.

Bentley’s mom tells us that Bentley has Angelman Syndrome. Angelman syndrome (AS) is a rare neuro-genetic disorder that occurs in one in 15,000 live births. Angelman syndrome is often misdiagnosed as cerebral palsy or autism due to lack of awareness. Characteristics of the disorder include developmental delay, lack of speech, seizures, and walking and balance disorders. Individuals with Angelman syndrome will require life-long care.
