McDonnell to hold a fundraiser at mansion for Healing Place

Anita Kumar

Gov. Bob McDonnell will hold his second fundraiser at the Executive Mansion tonight -- this time, for the Healing Place, a nonprofit organization that provides shelter for the homeless and recovery for people with chemical dependencies.

About 60 people are expected to attend. The event, which is expected to raise $16,000, is being held at the request of McDonnell's senior economic adviser Bob Sledd, who is an active supporter and formerly served as the finance chair for the organization.

Earlier this month, McDonnell hosted a reception for about 40 people who pledged $1,000 or more to Richmond's soon-to-be-opened charter school.

The Healing Placing will pick up the tab -- just as the Patrick Henry School of Science and Arts did at the first fundraiser. The event starts at 6 p.m.

McDonnell has a long history with the Healing Place. In 2007, he toured the facility with former governor Doug Wilder. He served lunch there on Christmas Eve last year and referenced the organization in his inaugural address.
