This past Columbus Day was a fun day for hundreds of Children’s Aid Society’s Dunlevy Milbank participants because of the special visit they received from a couple well-known friends of The Garden of Dreams Foundation at a "Pay It Forward" event. Among the guests were New York Knicks point guards Jason Kidd and Baron Davis, former shooting guard John Starks, New York Rangers Adam Graves, the Knicks City Dancers and the Rockettes. The event hosted by Garden of Dreams Board Member Darryl McDaniels of Run DMC, encouraged the children to give back to their community and do something positive for others. Before the day’s activities took off, Darryl led the youth and adults in an aspirational chant “I am the greatest thing to happen to this universe. And because of that, it's my responsibility to make others great too.”

The children were able to participate in a number of activities that included basketball, hockey, dancing and a singing workshop with Darryl McDaniels himself. Each child also received a Garden of Dreams backpack and school supplies handed out by the celebrity guests. Click here to view more photos.
