A barbecue fundraiser is being held Saturday to benefit City Councilwoman Priscilla Leal, who is still recovering from a severe stroke she suffered back in January.

The event will take place from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday at the Corpus Christi Police Officers Association, at 3122 Leopard. Barbecue plates will cost $10.

You can also make donations by checks payable to Martin Leal.

In April, Leal traveled to Houston to receive treatment at TIRR memorial, world-renowned physical therapy hospital.
