Rangers Alumni & Staff Serve Thanksgiving Feast

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

On Tuesday November 20, New York Rangers alumni Andre Dore, Rod Gilbert, and Adam Graves and Rangers marketing staff hosted a special Thanksgiving dinner event for members of the Garden of Dreams partner organization, Life Center.  Life Center, a shelter for homeless children and families on the Lower East side, was directly impacted by Hurricane Sandy causing residents to be affected due to flooding and power loss.
 
The alumni and staff were joined at the event by Speaker of the NY State Assembly Sheldon Silver and New York City Homeless Services Commissioner Seth Diamond. After a brief program kicking off the festivities, which included a DJ, Rangers giveaways, and much-needed blankets, a traditional thanksgiving feast was served for the 350 children and families of Life Center affected by Hurricane Sandy.
 
“It is fantastic to be here,” said Rangers alumnus Adam Graves. “This event is a time for families and communities to step back and reflect on the privilege of sharing.  We’re happy to be able to bring them a meal for the holiday.”
