Damian makes trading look easy as he participates in the 15th annual BGC Charity Day 2019 on Wednesday, September 11, 2019 in London, England for CureEB and the Sir Hubert von Herkomer Arts Foundation.

First up was GFI Charity Day where Damian hit the trading floor for CureEB. CureEB is passionate about medical research and clinical trials that will help lead to treatments and a cure for Epidermolysis Bullosa, a severe genetic skin condition that leads to blistering and skin loss at the slightest friction. Children with the condition are often referred to as ‘Butterfly Children’ as their skin is said to be as fragile as a butterfly’s wings.

Damian even made a video for CureEB to help promote their Butterfly Run scheduled for September 22, 2019. Click here to register.


Next up was BGC Charity Day where both Damian and Helen wowed the brokers on the trading floor at BGC Partners in Canary Wharf, One Churchill Place in London, England for Sir Hubert von Herkomer Arts Foundation, a foundation dedicated to ensuring that every child is given a chance to connect with and express their inner artist in a time when funding for the arts are squeezed out of the mainstream curriculum.

Many actors, public figures and sports icons joined the trading floors to participate in this year’s Charity Day that gives back to over 150 organizations, supporting charitable causes ranging from cancer research to community development to assisting veterans and emergency personnel.
