    The New York Knicks hosted 150 children, their families and teachers from Sandy Hook Elementary School on Saturday.

    Twenty or more children from the Newtown Choir from Sabrinas Encore Products sang the National Anthem before the Knicks' game against Sacramento.

    The Knicks organization on Tuesday visited Newtown, where 20 children and six adults were shot and killed at the school in December.

    The team and its Garden of Dreams Foundation hosted 400 children from Sandy Hook and their families in what was called a "Knicks Family Fun Day" event.

    There were basketball drills and contests, along with other activities such as a magician and balloon makers.
