Cantor Fitzgerald and BGC Partners, parent company of real estate brokerage Newmark Grubb Knight Frank, announced that Michael Lehrman, Global Head of Real Estate, will be presented with the Urban Heroes Award on November 5, 2012, at the Catalog for Giving of New York City’s 17th Annual Urban Heroes Awards Benefit.
All proceeds from the event will benefit The Catalog for Giving’s 12 member organizations.
Every three years, The Catalog for Giving of New York City chooses a select group of new youth organizations to support. Over the past ten years, The Catalog for Giving has helped over 150,000 children in New York City.
“For me, helping my four young children understand charitable giving, giving back to the community and helping others is paramount. I want them to see that all children should be inspired, successful and aspire to be leaders in our New York City community,” said Lehrman.
“I’ve been committed to helping disadvantaged New York City youth for a long time, so I jumped at the opportunity to participate with The Catalog for Giving, an organization many of my real estate colleagues have long supported.”
