Three companies affiliated with businessman and former Schieks Palace Royale strip club owner Robert Sabes gave $5,000 each. Two of them, Minnehaha Investments and Minnetonka Investments, are based in Nevada. The latter is now majority owner of New Bohemia Sausage & Bier Haus on Hennepin Avenue in northeast Minneapolis. Sabes and his family donated $1,000 to ​​the Cherryhomes campaign and $1,500 to Samuels.

Sabes, who now lives in Nevada, declined to comment on the donations when reached by phone. Cherryhomes was described as a friend of Sabes in a 1996 news report, but said Thursday that she has no contact with him.
