Lundqvist new Garden of Dreams spokesman
Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist, the new spokesperson for the Garden of Dreams Foundation, said he has "seen firsthand the unforgettable and impactful events that Garden of Dreams creates."
The Garden of Dreams Foundation, the non-profit charity that works closely with all areas of Madison Square Garden to make dreams come true for kids in crisis, has named New York Rangers All-Star goalie Henrik Lundqvist as its spokesperson.  In this role, Lundqvist will serve as the face of Garden of Dreams, host children at Rangers games, conduct special events such as skating parties at the MSG Training Center, and participate in public service messages.

In the two years since its establishment, Garden of Dreams has partnered with a diverse collection of children’s related organizations, including hospitals, foster organizations, homeless shelters, and “wish” organizations to develop unique events and activities - often involving unprecedented access to Madison Square Garden celebrities, events and venues - to brighten the lives of thousands of special children and their families.   

“The Garden of Dreams Foundation has a simple, yet heroic purpose: to use the power and magic of Madison Square Garden to make dreams come true for kids in crisis and Henrik Lundqvist embodies the characteristics of what our foundation is all about,” said Hank J. Ratner, chairman, Garden of Dreams.  “Henrik’s passion, inspiration and commitment for helping New York kids in crisis make him the ideal match for our foundation, which looks to expand its extraordinary breadth and create unique experiences for even more children in the future.” 

“I have seen firsthand the unforgettable and impactful events that Garden of Dreams creates and it is truly an honor to have been chosen to represent the Foundation and the incredible work it does with Madison Square Garden in helping children,” stated Lundqvist.  “Community outreach is very important to me and I am excited about this new role which I hope will focus more attention on the efforts being made to bring joy and one-of-a-kind memories to so many children facing enormous hardships.  I am also looking forward to spending time with the children I have met through Garden of Dreams.”
