Cantor Fitzgerald’s Eighth Annual Charity Day took place on Tuesday, September 11, 2012 and raised approximately $12 million. Each year, we commemorate the employees we lost in the World Trade Center attacks on September 11, 2001. Through Charity Day, Cantor Fitzgerald helps others, turning the most difficult day of the year into one that is positive and uplifting.
