Day for Kids Festival
The rain forced the annual Day for Kids event inside the Palmaro Clubhouse on Saturday September 24 (2011) but did not damper the spirits of an estimated 1,500 attendees.
A very special guest was the great Walt “Clyde” Frazier from the two time world champion New York Knicks. Frazier appeared as a spokesman for a new national Boys & Girls Club of America partnership with Kmart and Protégé MVP sports clothing.
A regular and much appreciated feature was the distribution of (over) 1,500 large food bags filled with fresh produce.
We thank all of the Hunts Point Market merchants who donated.
Thanks too to Home Depot and Coca-Cola, and especially to 60 staff and volunteers who gave their time to fill food bags and otherwise help out.
