It was such an honor to join Rebecca Bond the creator of the charity Evolve and Ms New York to Cantor Fitzgerald’s Charity Day. Charity day was started by Cantor Fitzgerald and BGC Partners commemorate the 658 Cantor employees and 61 Eurobrokers employees lost in the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks. They donate 100% of global revenues on Charity Day to the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund. Worldwide it has raised over $125 million.
After watching Ms New York, Nicole Kulovany facilitate a $500 million trade we then headed over to the Nasdaq market for the commemorative closing bell ceremony in remembrance of 9/11.
9/11- Never Forget:
While visiting Charity Day I couldn’t stop thinking about a co-worker of mine, Betty Farmer. She was a fiery red head who worked with me for years at Showtime Networks. The summer of 2001 she had left her post a few desks away from mine to pursue a job at Cantor Fitzgerald. Her feisty and fun personality is missed and someone I will never forget.
