LIFE’s Lady in Red charity gala confirms move from Mar-a-Lago


A charity confirmed Thursday that it’s pulling its fundraiser out of President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club.

LIFE’s 24th annual Lady in Red gala will be held Jan. 5 at The Breakers, instead of Dec. 2 at President Trump’s club.

Lois Pope, who described herself recently as a Trump loyalist, has hosted her Lady In Red gala at The Mar-a-Lago Club for almost all of its 24 years.
