Garden of Dreams Foundation to Host 6th Annual Dream Week, Begin. 8/11

For the sixth consecutive summer, the Garden of Dreams Foundation will host Dream Week , its week-long summer experience for 40 children (10-12 years old) from the Police Athletic League, one of its 22 partner organizations. The children will enjoy one-of-a-kind activities planned by the New York Knicks, Rangers, Liberty, MSG Networks, MSG Sports Properties and MSG Entertainment at various locations throughout the tri-state area including, but not limited to, Madison Square Garden, the MSG Training Center, Radio City Music Hall, MetLife Stadium and Stadium Tennis Center at Mill Pond Park.

Dream Week is one of the Foundation's core programs, exposing New York City's neediest children to exclusive summer activities outside of their daily environment. Throughout Dream Week, each division of The Madison Square Garden Company will bring opportunities and celebrity involvement to create positive memories for the children that will last a lifetime.

The children will participate in events with Knicks legends John Starks and Larry Johnson, Rangers legends Rod Gilbert and Ron Greschner, the Rockettes and Liberty legends Teresa Weatherspoon and Kym Hampton, as well as players from the New York Giants.
