Thanksgiving Dinners 2019
This November, the New York Rangers and New York Knicks both hosted Thanksgiving Dinners with Garden of Dreams, serving 250 children and families at each dinner from the NYC Department of Homeless Services.
The Rangers held their Thanksgiving Dinner at SPIN NYC, a ping pong social club in Manhattan. Rangers players Adam Fox, Brett Howden, and Greg McKegg joined to help serve dinner and to interact with the families. With lots of activities to choose from including life size Jenga and UNO, video games, interactive photo booth, and of course ping pong, our Garden of Dreams young people had a blast throughout the night.
During the Knicks Thanksgiving Dinner, our Garden of Dreams families from NYC Department of Homeless Services as well as families from Make-A-Wish Hudson Valley celebrated the holiday dinner in Westchester at the Tarrytown Estate on the Hudson. Complete with a live band, DJ, doughnut wall, and basketball pop-a-shot games, families enjoyed an evening full of fun with Knicks players Damyean Dotson, Kevin Knox, Marcus Morris, Frank Ntilikina, Elfrid Payton, Bobby Portis, Julius Randle, and Mitchell Robinson.
