2013-14 OMYF Black Tie & Tennies Gala Review

Tobias Harris joined a host of Magic legends, including Nick Anderson, Penny Hardaway, Tracy McGrady and Dwight Howard, to claim an extraordinary honor.

Harris, who was acquired by the Magic in a trade last season and continues to show tremendous improvement, was named the 2013-14 Rich & Helen DeVos Community Enrichment Award winner. Each year at the Gala, the OMYF honors a player who has dedicated his efforts off the court for the purpose of enhancing other’s lives.

“I pride myself in conducting myself the right way on and off the floor,” Harris said. “How much the Orlando Magic as an organization gives back to the community really pushed myself to continue to be with the community such as helping kids and seeing smiles on their faces."

“Giving back was so important to me,” he added. “Seeing an impact on their lives is such a blessing.”
