The reality star raised $50,000 for The Trevor Project, a non-profit suicide-prevention organization for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth, while participating in a charity event with Cantor Fitzgerald. The investment bank gives away millions of dollars each year on Sept. 11 in honor of their employees who died during the tragic 2001 terrorist attack.
