On November 4, 2011 the NYSE held its third annual Floor Broker Charity Trading day, a fund-raising event for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, one of the world’s premier pediatric cancer research centers. On that day, all net transaction fees on orders executed by floor brokers in NYSE and NYSE Amex securities were donated to the hospital.
We were deeply gratified to see customers, brokers, market makers and the entire Exchange community come together to advance St. Jude’s pioneering work in finding cures for children with cancer.
There was also a raffle to win a Mini Cooper as well as “Blue Jeans Friday” in which participants could wear their jeans to work that day in exchange for a donation.
Our sincere thanks to all who made this year’s drive a great success!
