More nonprofits pull fundraisers from Trump's Mar-a-Lago

WASHINGTON ( – At least 13 organizations have canceled fundraisers at Mar-a-Lago, President Trump’s Florida resort.

Who’s next?

 Two more organizations said Monday they are backing out of events at the Trump club. The Kravis Center for the Performing Arts will move its February wine auction, and Hearing the Ovarian Cancer Whisper will take its January luncheon to a nearby museum.

On Tuesday, Gateway for Cancer Research said it’s axing Mar-a-Lago as a venue for its St. Patrick’s Day event in March. And CNNMoney also confirmed that the Unicorn Children’s Foundation has decided to scrap its fashion show luncheon, which was set to be held there.

The Palm Beach Preservation Foundation and the Palm Beach Zoo and Conservation Society made similar moves over the weekend.

The exodus began after Trump said counter-protesters shared the blame for the violence at a white nationalist gathering in Charlottesville, Virginia. He also said that “very fine people” were mixed in with neo-Nazis and white supremacists.
