Recently a group of kids from WHEDCo had fun kicking off The Reindeer Games in celebration of the upcoming production of Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer: The Musical coming to Madison Square Garden. Rudolph was joined by his good friend Hermey and radio station 95.5 PLJ’s host John Foxx to help the children compete in various carnival style games including a Santa themed bean bag toss, Antler ring toss, pin the nose on the reindeer, and more.
After the games were completed, the children ran through a candy cane finish line to receive a donation of 500 tickets to WHEDCo’s partner organization The Garden of Dreams Foundation- a non-profit charity that works with The Madison Square Garden Company and MSG Networks, Inc. to positively impact the lives of children facing obstacles.
With New York Life as the sponsor, The Reindeer Games will be part of a pre-show experience for everyone attending the upcoming Rudolph musical and encourage all participants to work together using their own skills and talents to complete each game.
More info about the show:
The story tells the tale of a young Rudolph who, because of the appearance of his bright, shining nose, is excluded from the Reindeer Games. He flees Christmastown and meets up with new friends Hermey the Elf and Yukon Cornelius. After finding The Island of Misfit Toys, Rudolph journeys home, where a snowstorm of epic proportions is threatening Christmas. Can Rudolph rescue his family and friends and help Santa save the holiday?
