For the second year in a row, Jessica Pimentel, aka “Maria Ruiz” from the award-winning Netflix original series Orange is the New Black (OITNB), was on the phones with all smiles making trades in support of The INN for Cantor Fitzgerald’s annual 9/11 Charity Day. On Wednesday, September 11th, she visited two Cantor affiliate offices, GFI Group and BCG Partners, and spoke to real clients to carry out trades with help from their in-house brokers. In between chats with fellow celebrities, including Dr. Ruth Westheimer, she even took a few moments to sign INN and OITNB merchandise to be raffled and auctioned off at upcoming INN fundraising events.
Charity Day is held every year in memory of the 658 Cantor Fitzgerald and 64 Eurobrokers employees who were lost in the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks. 100% of all global revenues on Charity Day are donated to the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund and dozens of charities around the world. In 2018, Jessica’s efforts in support of The INN raised $15,000 for our charity. We are thrilled to see the results from 2019!
