Fake mayoral run generates $5,000 for nonprofit

The campaign may be fake, but the benefits proved very real last night as a local businesswoman who has launched a faux run to be mayor of Glendale gave a $5,000 check to Glendale Healthy Kids, the beneficiary of all of her contributions.

Helen McDonagh, owner of Massage Envy, gave the check to Camille Levee, outgoing executive director of the nonprofit, the night before Levee left Glendale to take a position in Arizona.

McDonagh is halfway to her goal to raise $10,000 for Glendale Healthy Kids, which provides access to health services for needy children. Her self-imposed deadline is June 30.

Donations have ranged from several $10 gifts from area residents to $500 from one of McDonagh’s franchisees.

“We’re looking for lots more $10 donations from the community,” McDonagh said.
