Yard sale Saturday to benefit family of young man hit by taxi in Montauk

Mattituck will come together tomorrow to help one of their own.

Kait’s Angels, a group formed in honor of Kait Doorhy, who lost her life after a tragic accident last August, will reach out to the family of another young Mattituck resident, Benjamin Pileski, 20, who was struck by a taxi in Montauk in July.

To that end, Kait’s Angels will host a Community Yard Sale tomorrow at the Doorhy home, located at 1125 Ole Jule Lane in Mattituck.

All proceeds of the event will benefit Benjamin’s family, to help with extra expenses.

Recently Pileski was transferred from Stony Brook Hospital to St. Charles to begin the road to rehabilitation.

His brother Zach wrote on the Ben’s Corner Facebook page that Ben was transferred to the new facility in Port Jefferson, where he has begun occupational, speech and physical therapy “to continue to help him to improve,” he said. “He still has a long way to go but everyone’s support truly has helped.”

Ben’s mother Gwen DeFriest reflected on her son’s progress: “Ben moving to St Charles gives me hope, as every small step has given me.”

Ben’s family just wants to continue to thank everyone for their continued prayer and support.

“That’s what’s keeping me going,” his father Thomas Pileski has said.
