Here’s your game thread.
Though we are sometimes critical (sometimes?) of the on-ice work the Rangers do, we are never disappointed with what they do off the ice. Here’s another example of the organization’s good-heartedness. There was just a feature on it during the pregame show on MSG, but for those who didn’t see it:
NEW YORK RANGERS HOST GARDEN OF DREAMS NIGHT
Garden Of Dreams Foundation Promotes Awareness and Hosts Tri-State Area Children In Need
New York, November 23, 2009 – The New York Rangers will host a special “Garden of Dreams Night” to raise awareness for the Garden of Dreams Foundation. Garden of Dreams is a non-profit organization that works closely with all areas of Madison Square Garden, including the Knicks, Rangers, Liberty, MSG Media, MSG Entertainment, and Fuse, to “make dreams come true for kids in crisis.”
On Monday, November 23rd, children from the Garden of Dreams Foundation will participate in a series of once-in-a-lifetime experiences with the New York Rangers when they host the Columbus Blue Jackets at Madison Square Garden. To kick off the evening, a child from Make-A-Wish Hudson Valley will perform a ceremonial puck drop. As the Rangers enter the ice prior to the game, 10 children from Children’s Village will have the opportunity to participate in a high-five line with the players. The Rangers will host three suites for children and representatives from various Garden of Dreams partner organizations to enjoy the game and receive visits from Rangers alumni. Two children from Children’s Aid Society have been selected to serve as honorary MSG reporter and photographer to capture the activities of the evening.
