On February 11 & 12, 2018, The Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund held the Hurricane Harvey Family Relief distribution event, which was the largest distribution of its kind in the Relief Fund’s history, giving out a total of approximately $5 million to those families hardest hit by Hurricane Harvey.
The Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund led this effort thanks to a generous grant from the firms and partners of Cantor Fitzgerald, The Newmark Group, and BGC Partners, along with donations from the general public. Allison and Howard Lutnick, along with Edie Lutnick, Founder and President of the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund, worked with Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner’s office to make the program a reality.
The Relief Fund could not have achieved this without the invaluable efforts of school officials and administrators from across 15 school districts covering over 200 Houston-area schools; they worked to identify the 5,000 families who lost the most and now need the most.
