Garden of Dreams Adopts Children's Aid Families for the Holidays
We all know that the holidays are not about giving and receiving. They are about experiencing the true spirit of the season. It is about helping those in need and about imparting the importance of helping people who are less fortunate. One-hundred thirty six Children’s Aid families have much to celebrate this holiday thanks to a partnership with The Garden of Dreams Foundation. Madison Square Garden employees, as well as Knicks and Rangers players and coaches, “adopted” families and were able to fulfill their Christmas “wish lists” with gifts ranging from televisions to winter coats to bicycles. The Garden also hosted the families at a celebration with former Knicks player John Starks, former Ranger Adam Graves and the Rockettes.
The Garden of Dreams Foundation, which was launched by Madison Square Garden President and CEO Hank Ratner, brings together all areas of Madison Square Garden to provide memorable events and experiences to underprivileged children and families. The Foundation has about 350 events throughout the year with appearances by celebrities from both the sports and entertainment realms. The Garden of Dreams Foundation has a long-running partnership with The Children’s Aid Society and provides many wonderful experiences for some of New York’s neediest children throughout the year.
