GREENSBORO, N.C. — A Greensboro nightclub cancelled an event Wednesday night honoring Trayvon Martin after the club said it had no knowledge of it.

The Greensboro News & Record reported that promotional flyers said the event was planned at Bentleys Restaurant & Lounge at 709 East Market St. People with empty Skittles bags would reportedly be let in free before 11 p.m.

The paper reported that the event’s organizers are not affiliated with the venue and club spokesman Franklin Part said they did not endorse the event.

The event was reportedly cancelled because promotions did not say where the proceeds would go. Organizers said they wanted to send the money to the Martin family.
