NEW YORK Trustees of real estate baroness Leona Helmsley's estate say they're giving $136 million to charity with just $1 million going to the dogs.
Helmsley's estate announced 53 charitable grants Tuesday, the bulk of which went to New York City hospitals and medical research. The largest grant, $40 million, went to a digestive diseases center at New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, while $35 million went to start two research facilities in Helmsley's name at Mount Sinai Medical Center.
