Every year, Cantor Fitzgerald and our affiliates, BGC Partners and GFI Group, in conjunction with the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund, commemorate our 658 friends and colleagues and 61 Eurobrokers employees who perished on September 11, 2001 by distributing 100% of our global revenues on Charity Day to the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund and dozens of charities around the world. Since its inception, Charity Day has raised approximately $159 million globally. Each anniversary is a poignant occasion for us as Charity Day is our way of turning a tragic day into one that is positive and uplifting by helping others.
Many distinguished guests lent their support by joining us on the day. We were proud to welcome dozens of public figures, actors, models & musicians such as President Bill Clinton, Mr.Tony Blair, Steve Buscemi, John Starks, Nick Swisher, Carol Alt, Brady Skjei, Victor Cruz, Harry Lennix, Rosie Perez, Cindy Crawford, Johnny Damon, Coco Rocha, Spencer Dinwiddie, Kimiko Glenn, Jim Leyritz, Richard Kind, Billy Crystal, Steven Matz, Ron Guidry, Lias Andersson, Mika Zibanejad, Tino Martinez, Brian Cashman, Chuck Liddell, Ilana Glazer, Caris LeVert, Dr. Ruth Westheimer, Kevin Knox, Victor Olapido, Candice Swanepoel and Shannon Elizabeth.
