New York Knicks host basketball clinic for Courts of Dreams Foundation

February 23, 2011

The New York Knicks hosted a basketball clinic and family festival last month with the Courts of Dreams Foundation, featuring Knicks players Amar’e Stoudemire and Toney Douglas and former Knicks John Starks and Charles Smith at the Madison Square Garden Training Center. The event raised money for Courts of Dreams, whose mission is to restore and maintain outdoor basketball courts for children in New York City neighborhoods and around the world, fostering healthy, safe, communities while promoting the values of basketball such as team work, mutual respect and leadership.
