The Palm Beach Zoo said Tuesday that its Tropical Safari fundraiser gala will be at The Breakers resort on Palm Beach, on Feb. 2, 2018, the same day it had previously scheduled its now-withdrawn gala at Mar-a-Lago.

The West Palm Beach zoo is among 17 charities that have decided to move their events from President Donald Trump’s club since his comments last week about the violence in Charlottesville, Va.
