    [h=1]Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund Announces $10 Million Hurricane Sandy Family Support Program[/h] NEW YORK, Jan. 10, 2013 -- /PRNewswire/ -- The Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund, in conjunction with Cantor Fitzgerald and BGC Partners, announced its Hurricane Sandy Family Support Program to provide $10 million to thousands of families in Brooklyn, Queens, Long Island, Staten Island, and New Jersey who were severely impacted by Hurricane Sandy.
    The Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund is "adopting" 19 elementary schools throughout these communities and will be distributing a $1,000 Payoneer® prepaid debit card to each family from the selected schools, beginning January 10 and extending into early March.
    "We understand the tremendous loss that has shaken so many families, and are committed to provide money directly to those in need," said Howard W. Lutnick, Chairman and CEO of Cantor Fitzgerald, L.P. and BGC Partners, Inc.
    Allison Lutnick, Mr. Lutnick's wife, said "We created the Relief Fund's school adoption program to help families in communities that were among the hardest hit by the storm, and which many of Cantor's and BGC's employees care deeply about and some call home."
    Edie Lutnick, Executive Director of the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund, said "We learned from the tragedy of 9/11 how important it is to provide support directly to people who are suffering." She added that Cantor Fitzgerald and BGC Partners are matching all donations to the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund for Hurricane Sandy assistance.
    Mr. Lutnick said, "On our annual Charity Day, Cantor Fitzgerald and BGC donate 100% of their revenues to the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund and over 150 charities globally each year. The support of our clients, brokers and employees who waive their pay on Charity Day, and the many celebrity guests who help make Charity Day a success, enable us to assist victims of Hurricane Sandy and support many other charities globally." Mr. Lutnick said "Local politicians and school officials in both New York and New Jersey have been true partners in our school adoption program." He also gave special thanks to Payoneer® for graciously donating their debit card services, and expressed gratitude to his sister Edie for her leadership of the Relief Fund, his wife Allison for spearheading the Relief Fund's school adoption program, and the Relief Fund's all-volunteer team for their dedication and commitment.

    I like it when Froggy makes a serious thread on a board with idiots that post threads about their bowel habits and what they have for lunch.

    those are things that only occur in small houses and in the movies. the patterns are easy to pick up and trace back when your computerized trades are high volume. some places actually have ethics to adhere to, especially if they're very big and not only a trading house.
