Today, David Faber (CNBC “The Faber Report” and “Squawk on the Street”) won his “Jeopardy! Power Players” match, earning $50,000 on behalf of New Visions for Public Schools, the largest education reform organization dedicated to improving the quality of education children receive in New York City’s public schools.
“There is no greater advantage in life than having had a good education and in New York City, where a staggering 1.1 million kids attend public schools, that goal is often out of reach,” he said.
Faber has supported the organization for a decade and is currently on the board of directors of two charter schools managed by New Visions scheduled to open in the Bronx in September.
Faber defeated Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (NBA’s All-Time Leading Scorer and Global Cultural Ambassador) and Dana Perino (Fox News Channel “The Five”). As runner-ups, they received $10,000 for their special causes. Abdul-Jabbar played for the Skyhook Foundation and Perino competed for Pets2Vets.
