Brooklyn- State Senator Marty Golden, in partnership with the South West Brooklyn Parks Task Force last night hosted a Christmas Tree lighting in McKinley Park in preparation for the upcoming Christmas season. The event, which featured Christmas carols performed by the St. Anselm’s Choir, brought out the holiday spirit in all as we celebrate this magical time of year.

Senator Golden stated, "During the Christmas season, and throughout the entire year, all members of the community should join together in the Christmas spirit and exhibit good will to serve the most needy. This year, our Christmas tree lighting at McKinley Park served as an occasion where many residents embraced those values together and enjoy the warmth that this holiday brings as winter comes upon us."

Hot chocolate was served and Santa Claus gave out candy canes to all the children who attended and told him what they wanted for Christmas. Donations for Senator Golden’s toy drive were collected at the event.
