Anyone who called up and donated to the BGC Annual Global Charity Event may have gotten Kit Harington or Prince Harry on the other end! BGC Partners hold an annual event on September 11 every year to raise money for the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund and other charities around the world. The Game of Thrones actor, Duke of Sussex, rapper/actor Common and singer Cheryl are among the many who participated in the charity event on September 11 in London, England.
Kit, 32, wore a navy Henley and was very involved in the phone calls he answered.
Prince Harry, 34, looked regal as ever in a navy blue suit and tie as he took calls throughout the event.
Common, 47, helped out during the 2018 charity event and came back to participate this year. He was all smiles as he answered the phone and kept things casual with a denim jacket.
Cheryl Ann Tweedy (AKA the songstress Cheryl), 36, donned a bold red plaid top with large hoop earrings as she manned the phone like a pro.
A scruffy Damian Lewis helped out at the charity event in a brown jacket and blue button-down shirt. The actor looked much more at ease as he spoke to donators on the phone than his mercurial character Bobby Axelrod on Billions.
Other participants included English actress and musician Beverley Knight, British actress Helen McCrory, Formula One racer Lando Norris and Irish cricketer Eoin Morgan.
According to the BCG Partners website, “Every year on September 11th, in conjunction with the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund, we remember our 658 friends and colleagues and the 61 Eurobrokers employees who were tragically killed by distributing 100% of our global revenues to the Relief Fund and many other charities around the world.” Their first event that raised money for the victims of September 11 was held in 2005, five years after the 2001 terrorist attacks.
Adding, “Since its inception, Charity Day has raised approximately $159 million globally. Each anniversary is a poignant occasion for us. Charity Day is our way of turning a tragic day into one that is positive and uplifting by helping others.” Volunteers can participate in London or stateside in New York.
Past participants include Jake Gyllenhaal, Margot Robbie, Matthew McConaughey and Tom Hardy, among many others.
