Knicks Thanksgiving Dinner 2018
On November 19, the New York Knicks and Garden of Dreams hosted a beautiful Thanksgiving dinner for 250 children and their families at TAO Downtown. The families, affiliated with the Garden of Dreams’ partner organization, NYC Department of Homeless Services, came from across the five boroughs to attend the event.
The evening was an unforgettable experience! With DJ Boof providing the music and the Knicks City Dancers in attendance, TAO Downtown was filled with laughter, cheer, and warm smiles. Throughout the evening, guests were entertained by the amazing Harry the Magician. Families were able to participate in a floating photo booth, caricature art, and face-painting.
The surprise of the night came when the Knicks staff and players arrived to help serve Thanksgiving dinner! Families had the opportunity to interact with Frank Ntilikina, Kevin Knox, Mitchell Robinson, Trey Burke, Allonzo Trier, and Noah Vonleh. Just when you think things couldn’t get better, the Knicks players joined the kids on the dance floor to showcase their moves.
