The attorneys at Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C., in collaboration with The Gardiner Foundation, provided 30 Bronx children with an unforgettable evening by giving them free tickets to the New York Knicks v. Brooklyn Nets game on Monday, January 19, 2015 at Madison Square Garden, “the world’s most famous arena.” This experience was special and memorable for many of these kids because it was their first time attending a basketball game.
The children not only enjoyed a free basketball game, but also got a swag bag filled with food coupons to enjoy at the game, Knicks t-shirts, and other Knicks memorabilia. What made the experience even better for these lucky 30 was attending a New York Knicks’ tradition of hosting a game at the Madison Square Garden on Martin Luther King Jr. Day since 1987.
The children enjoyed the game under the watchful eyes of Dexter Gardiner, founder of The Gardiner Foundation, which was established to provide emotional and financial support to families who have experienced the unexpected and tragic loss of a loved one.
The selection is made from a group of children who are involved in the mentoring program “tru-talk.” The youth mentoring program offers children who are dealing with the inner city problems of drugs, sex, violence and guns with the emotional and mental counseling they need to help them overcome the obstacles of every day life.
This annual event of selecting 30 lucky children to attend a free NY Knick’s game is made possible by the efforts of Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C.
