According to the event listing, “The three are currently being sued for defamation because, to quote the public claimant, in early 2015, Mr. Naftali began hearing rumors that Ms. Buxom was accusing him of having sexually assaulted her. All funds raised are split by the needs of the defendants.” They say that any leftover funds will go to RAINN.
