"If you can help children who have gone through what these kids
have, give them something totally outside their normal experiences
... and look at their faces as they get off a plane into a hangar
decorated like the North Pole, it's really cool." — Former New York
Ranger Adam Graves

Delta Airlines and Madison Square Garden teamed up on Tuesday
for Holiday in a Hangar, in which 100 children living with illness
or poverty and their families “flew” from the Delta Terminal at
Kennedy Airport to the North Pole — a decorated hangar.
Guests included singer Willow Smith, the Rockettes, former
members of the Knicks and Rangers, and of course, Santa.
