"We are gratified that we are seen as an important entity in the support of public education in Detroit, and we will give due recognition to the donors when monies are received."


In an effort to apologize for how she acted at one of Moore's charity events, Leakes suggested the two make a sizable $20,000 donation each to the charity of her choice.
