    The New York Knicks will host 150 children, their families and teachers from Sandy Hook Elementary School on Saturday when they play the Sacramento Kings. The team, the Knicks City Dancers and Madison Square Garden’s Garden of Dreams Foundation hosted 400 children from Sandy Hook Elementary and their families at the Newtown Youth Academy in what was called a “Knicks Family Fun Day” event. A month after the killings, children from the choir who will perform recorded “Sandy Hook: Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” The Knicks organization on Tuesday visited Newtown, where 20 children and six adults were shot and killed at the school in December. There were basketball drills and contests, along with other activities such as a magician, face painters and balloon makers in a carnival-type setting.
