Madison Square Garden may entertain thousands of fans with sports events and concerts, but it also serves thousands of children in foster care, homeless shelters or hospitals all across the city.

MSG’s “Garden of Dreams” foundation has made special, once-in-a-lifetime experiences a reality for a nearly a quarter of a million of these children since 2006. These experiences offer exclusive access to MSG celebrities, events and venues. One event held yesterday featured the New York Knicks, Rangers and even the Radio City Rockettes.

Grammy Award-Winning Singer/Songwriter Ashanti and current NY Knicks Assistant General Manager and legendary former Knicks player Allan Houston are two of the big names who make a difference through the Garden of Dreams. They joined the Soledad and the “Starting Point” team to share their experience.
