The Washington Post reported that the “star power of the presidency” has been a windfall for charities holding events at Mar-a-Lago, which have seen an increase in ticket sales, and for the Trump Organization, which charges by the number of guests. “Now that you have all this security, it just creates [this sense of], ‘You’re special by being there,’ ” said the executive director of one nonprofit that held a January event at the club.
