GARDEN OF DREAMS AND NEW YORK RANGERS HOST ANNUAL HOLIDAY DINNER AT LAVO
On Friday, November 4th, 200 of our young people and families from Garden of Dreams partner, Department of Homeless Services joined us for a special Thanksgiving event to kick off the holiday season at LAVO.
Our young people and families enjoyed a variety of hot meals served by current Rangers players Jacob Trouba, Samuel Blais, and Zac Jones, and world-famous female boxer Amanda Serrano grabbed a serving spoon and joined the line as well!
Jacob Trouba, our New York Rangers captain, encouraged the little ones to eat more greens and veggies while serving from the green beans station. The families also enjoyed live music, including a performance by Garden of Dreams Talent Show alum Manny. That’s not all – the event also featured fun activations including face painting, ornament decorating, balloon animals, photobooths and other fun games. After a successful day, each gift received a gift bag with Ranger-branded items to help spread some early holiday cheer. Everyone had a blast!
