Camille Kostek and Rob Gronkowski are the type of couple who love to give back, which is one of the many reasons why we adore them both. The SI Swimsuit model and former NFL star attended the annual Charity Day hosted by Cantor Fitzgerald in New York City on Sept. 11.

The two helped to raise funds for The Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund, a nonprofit that donates monetary resources to those in need. Since it was established in September 2001, the fund has helped aid families impacted by emergencies and natural disasters, assist wounded military members and more.

Giving back is familiar territory for Kostek and Gronkowski, as the couple met at a charity event 10 years ago, when the 31-year-old model and actress was an NFL cheerleader and the 34-year-old tight end was with the New England Patriots.

Kostek acknowledged the charity event on her Instagram story on Monday. “an emotional day in NYC today,” she wrote. “We spent the day with our friends at @bgccharityday @cfrelieffund in honor of 9/11 ❤️.”

This isn’t Kostek and Gronkowski’s first year participating in the fundraiser, as they’ve worked with The Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund in years past.

“We feel really, really honored to be a part of this and to make some magic happen today,” the couple said of their experience at last year’s charity event. “We just love the atmosphere. It’s very electric, very high energy, and it’s just a great feel overall.”
