The strip club said the tournament was intended to raise money for charity, and that the event was never meant to make a political statement. (RELATED: Trump Golfs With Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus In Florida)

“Our intention was to raise money for a deserving local charity,” the strip club said. “Trump Doral, the hotel, has no association with our company outside of simply allowing us to rent the golf course.”

The tournament was set to raise money for a Miami kids’ basketball program, and would have charged $450 for a single-player package for meals, a “special gift” and “caddy girl of your choice,” as well as $1,000 for a special “foursome” package, which included bottle service and 30 minutes in the “VIP room.”

The Trump Organization told the Washington Post that all purchases for the event will be refunded.
