Every year Cantor Fitzgerald and BGC Partners commemorate the 658 employees they lost on September 11, 2001 through their annual Charity Day. This year’s Charity Day will take place on Tuesday, September 11.
“Celebrity brokers” will visit Cantor Fitzgerald’s trading floors at 110 East 59th Street and BGC Partners’ trading floors at 199 Water Street, to carry out real trades with both companies’ clients over the phone (with a licensed broker) in order to help raise money for selected charities.
Cantor Fitzgerald and its affiliates have raised more than $77 million over the past seven years. Last year, approximately $12 million was raised in a single day which was donated to more than 200 charities around the globe.
