Knicks Host "Home for the Holiday's"
On Monday, December 19, 2011, the New York Knicks and the Garden of Dreams Foundation hosted a "Home for the Holiday's" Season Launch Party for 150 children from Garden of Dreams partner organization, WHEDCo, at the Madison Square Garden Training Center. The event included special appearances by Knicks players and the Knicks City Dancers. Interactive elements included pop-a-shot basketball, skee-ball, ping pong, and air hockey tables, a photo booth, and game pro stations (video games), while the Knicks Street Team conducted on-court basketball drills and contests. There were also face painters, a magician, and a DJ to provide more entertainment for the children. Throughout the day children and players rotated through each station and children had the opportunity to take photos with some of the players. Each participant received a gift bag filled with a Knicks/GDF hat, "NBA is Back" t-shirt, and a water bottle. Water was provided for all attendees and snacks were given on the bus as kids departed the event to return home.
