Each year on or around September 11th, Cantor Fitzgerald and its affiliates, BGC Partners and GFI Group, in conjunction with the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund, commemorate their 658 friends and colleagues and 61 Eurobrokers employees who perished on September 11, 2001, by distributing 100% of their global revenues on Charity Day to the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund and selected charities around the world. This year, Imagine was selected to participate, and was fortunate to have actor Kimiko Glenn of Orange is the New Black, as our celebrity ambassador. “We are so grateful to Cantor and to Kimiko for saying yes to our request to participate in the day on behalf of Imagine,” said Mary Robinson, Imagine Executive Director. “Year after year Cantor Fitzgerald, through their grit and perseverance, has been able to turn the trauma and devastation of the day into a contribution to the world, donating millions to charities around the world. We are so fortunate to be one of them.”
Imagine offers free year-round grief support groups for children age 3-18 who have had a parent or brother or sister die, and for families caring for a family member living with a life-altering physical illness. Concurrent groups are available for parents and guardians, and young adults 18-30. Support groups meet on weekday nights for an hour and a half. Dinner is provided prior to the group meeting.
