Wounded Warrior Project to Participate in BGC Partners Annual Charity Day
Date:9/2/2009

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Sept. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of BGC's fifth annual Charity Day taking place Friday, Sept. 11, 2009, Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) and a select group of other charitable organizations will receive a portion of revenues generated from global trades made on that day.

BGC Partners, Inc., one of the world's leading inter-dealer brokers, was created while Cantor Fitzgerald rebuilt following the World Trade Center attacks on 9/11. Cantor Fitzgerald was the worst hit company on 9/11, losing 658 of its employees.

Charity Day was originally conceived as a way to raise money for the families of the ones who were lost, but evolved to donating funds to charities around the world on the anniversary of 9/11.

Celebrity "brokers" help raise money by conducting real trades alongside licensed brokers. More than 40 celebrity guests helped raise over $8 million last year. Celebrity guests include Sopranos actors Tony Sirico, Vince Curatola and Vinny Pastore, all strong supporters of Wounded Warrior Project and the nation's severely wounded veterans.

"Many of this generation of veterans chose to join the military shortly after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 because they wanted to defend the freedoms we hold dear as Americans," said Wounded Warrior Project Executive Director Steven Nardizzi. "We are grateful to BGC and its clients for continuing to recognize our warriors' sacrifices for our country."

The event will take place in Manhattan at One Seaport Plaza, 199 Water Street, 19th Floor. Guests will work the trading floor from 7 a.m. until 4 p.m. ET.

Mark Webster, executive managing director and general manager for the Americas at BGC, said: "The Wounded Warrior Project has once again been selected as one of the charities to be honored on BGC's Charity Day in acknowledgment o
