There were basketball drills and contests, along with other activities such as a magician, face painters and balloon makers in a carnival-type setting.

"That was great," Knicks forward Amare Stoudemire said. "We were there pretty much just wanting to put smiles and hope back in the families faces. It was an awesome event. Great for us to interact with the families there. That was great for them."

A month after the killings, children from the choir who will perform recorded "Sandy Hook: Somewhere Over the Rainbow." Proceeds from the sale of the song will benefit the Newtown Youth Academy and the United Way of Western Connecticut.
