Cantor Fitzgerald, the bond-trading firm that lost hundreds of employees on 9/11, held its annual day of charity on the 11th anniversary of the attacks.

Every year on or close to the anniversary, the company pledges 100 percent of revenue from one day to various charities.

Several celebrities are always on hand for the day to meet employees and speak to clients.

This year, Kate Upton, Victor Cruz, Mariano Rivera, Michael J. Fox, Tiki Barber, Henrik Lundgvist, Petra Nemcova, Edward Norton, Steve Buscemi, Rudy Giuliani, and many, many more stopped by the firm.

Now based in Midtown Manhattan, Cantor Fitzgerald was located on the top floors of the World Trade Center and lost 658 workers -- more than any other company or entity -- when terrorists destroyed the towers.
