We are thrilled to be attending this year’s BGC Charity Day with very special ambassador…
On Tuesday 11 September Phillip will be joining family members of the DSA as well as ambassadors and beneficiaries from sixteen other charities to take over the BGC offices in London, New York and around the world to raise money and awareness and to commemorate the colleagues and employees BGC lost on 9/11.
Phillip will be attending as ambassador for the DSA as well as the charity Orchid, Fighting Male Cancer.
BGC Partners is a leading global brokerage company, servicing the financial and real estate markets. Formally part of Cantor Fitzgerald, BGC became its own entity in 2004. On BGC Charity Day 100% of global revenues raised are donated to the participating charities and the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund, transforming thousands of lives. So far, BGC Charity Day has raised nearly $147 million.
Phillip began his UK career in The Broom Cupboard and went on to present Going Live, Take Two, The Movie Game and Schofield’s Europe, plus touring theatre productions such as Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat and Dr Doolittle. In 2002 Phillip signed to co-present the ITV show This Morning with Fern Britton and shortly after signed an exclusive contract with ITV. He remains one of the principle faces for the channel where he enjoys hosting a wide variety of shows such as the British Soap Awards, The Cube, Mr and Mrs, 5 Gold Rings and Dancing On Ice. He continues to host This Morning where he struck up a successful partnership with his “on screen wife” Holly Willoughby.
We are very grateful to Phillip for choosing to support the DSA and for BGC for selecting us as one of their charities.
Good luck to everyone involved in this year’s event and we hope everyone has a great day!
