Barron Hilton, who has been quoted as saying he is embarrassed by his granddaughter, is leaving 97% of empire to charity.
Barron Hilton recently announced via his son Steven Hilton, that he is building on the philanthropic legacy of his father by contributing approximately $1.2 billion of proceeds from the sale of Hilton Hotels and the pending sale of Harrah’s Entertainment to eventually benefit the Conrad Hilton Foundation. The foundation describes its mission as "to relieve the suffering, the distressed and the destitute," and provides funding for clean water, education, housing and drug projects. It also funds a project for Roman Catholic nuns in Los Angeles.
Jerry Oppenheimer, author of "House of Hilton," said that Barron "was, and is, extremely embarrassed by how the Hilton name has been sullied by Paris. He now doesn't want to leave unearned wealth to his family."
