The Minority Corporate Counsel Association (MCCA), a national organization committed to advancing the hiring, retention and promotion of diverse lawyers in the legal profession, is honored to participate in the 2018 Cantor Fitzgerald Charity Day. Esteemed journalist, anchor and writer MSNBC/NBC News, Richard Lui, will serve as the MCCA celebrity ambassador.
Every year, Cantor Fitzgerald and their affiliates, BGC Partners and GFI Group, in conjunction with the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund, commemorates 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 dozens of charities around the world.
On this annual day, the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund invites celebrity guests from the entertainment and sports industries to work with licensed brokers and their clients to raise money and awareness for a variety of selected charities. Since its inception, Charity Day has raised approximately $147 million globally.
“We are very honored and grateful to be selected to participate in Cantor Fitzgerald’s Charity Day,” said Jean Lee, MCCA President and CEO. “The generous funds will help us break the barriers to entry in the legal profession and will change the life of a diverse student.”
