Loss of philanthropist Chuck Rider felt in Centre County

Charles “Chuck” Rider had planned a big used-car sale for Saturday, Sept. 15, 2001. But before it could come, the unthinkable happened. So instead of pitching cars, he used the event and its live radio broadcast to ask for donations for 9/11 rescue workers and victims’ families, eventually sending a truck load of supplies to New York.
