Paris Hilton is devoting more of her time to charities, as promised. She attended a charity gala on Sunday to help raise money for children with spinal cord injuries. Her friend, Jesse Billauer, a former pro surfer who is paralyzed, founded the organization. “It’s a great organization,” Paris told People magazine. “It gives people hope and I’m really happy to be here to support Jesse.” Paris was also the highest bidder ($17,500) on a surfing lesson with Billauer.
