Garden of Dreams Foundation’s Dream Week 2010

July 22, 2010

Earlier this month, the Garden of Dreams Foundation held Dream Week 2010, a unique summer camp experience for kids from a community center in the Bronx. The kids spent the fun-filled week meeting and participating in activities with players, performers, and personalities from all areas of Madison Square Garden plus Radio City Music Hall and the Fuse television network.
