MSG Network and the Garden of Dreams Foundation will host a fundraiser to support the relief and rebuilding efforts for those affected by Hurricane Sandy on Friday night during MSG Network’s telecast of the New York Knicks vs. Dallas Mavericks game. The evening’s net proceeds, along with money raised through an online auction, will be split between the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City and the American Red Cross to assist those throughout the tri-state area who have been impacted by the storm.
Starting at 7:00 p.m. during the “Visa Knicks Game Night” pregame show, and running through the entire game and “Knicks Ford Postgame Show,” viewers can call (212) 465-3900 to purchase $100 raffle tickets that enter them for the chance to win prizes and help those who are dealing with the aftermath of last week’s storm. Winners will be announced on November 19. A complete list of prizes is included below.
In addition, MSG Network and the Garden of Dreams Foundation have teamed up with CharityBuzz.com to auction off several high-end experiences and prizes. The online auction will start Friday, November 9 at 6 p.m. and run through 6 p.m. on November 19, with all net proceeds being donated to the aforementioned disaster relief organizations.
