The German Consulate General Recommends:
Every November, the German-speaking community of Brooklyn and beyond meets at dusk for the beloved Lantern Walk through beautiful Prospect Park. Children and their families come from all over the New York metro area, equipped with their often handmade glowing lanterns. After singing the traditional songs we follow a procession through the park to watch a reenactment of St. Martin on horseback, sharing his cloak with the beggar.
In the spirit of St. Martin this event is a fundraiser to benefit a different charity every year. The National Pediatric Cancer Foundation (NPCF) is uniting to find answers that save children’s lives. The NPCF is dedicated to funding clinical trials by collaborating with a network of 24 cutting-edge hospitals across the nation to fast-track less toxic and more targeted treatments to end childhood cancer. The NPCF has received a perfect 100% score for financial health and transparency and is recognized as the top-rated children’s cancer charity in the U.S. by Charity Navigator.
Minimum suggested donation is $10 per child.
