On Sunday’s episode of “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” Kenya Moore threw a fundraiser for the charity Saving Our Daughters, and for some reason used the occasion to honor NeNe Leakes, who refers to the organization as one of several charities she supports.
After NeNe reluctantly showed up and threw shade during the event (because she claimed Kenya never formally invited her), Kenya proudly said she raised “thousands of dollars” for the group anyway.
Well, Saving Our Daughters says they haven’t seen a dime.
“Ms. Kenya Moore stated that thousands of dollars were raised at this event. To protect the integrity of Saving Our Daughters, our records show that we did not receive any of the proceeds raised from Ms. Moore’s masquerade ball,” read a press release from the organization.
Read the entire release below:
On February 16, 2014, Saving Our Daughters was mentioned on the episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta as being honored with a fundraiser on its behalf.
Our charity was contacted by publicist April Love to get approval and give notice of this upcoming event. Much to our delight, we were indeed honored to be chosen. After all, one of our largest financial contributors, Mrs. NeNe Leakes who has been responsible for contributions in the thousands of dollars throughout the years, is a member of the cast.
Days later, to our surprise Ms. Love did contact me and inform me that she had decided to terminate her company’s involvement with this event. At that point, Ms. Moore contacted me to continue moving forward with the event as purposed and planned. This call took place a day before the event was scheduled to take place.
