El Paso Mayor, First Lady Will Donate Next Check to Candlelighters of West Texas/Southern New Mexico
El Paso Mayor Oscar Leeser announced Monday First Lady Lisa Leeser has selected Candlelighters of West Texas/Southern New Mexico as the second non-profit that will receive a donation as part of their newly created charity.
The Mayor and First Lady’s charity was created after the Leesers committed to donate his mayoral salary during the Inaugural Ceremony in June.
The check presentation will happen Wednesday. The Children's Grief Center of El Paso accepted the Leesers donation last month.
El Paso's mayoral salary is nearly $50,000.
