The OMYF is committed to helping children in Central Florida realize their full potential, especially those most at-risk, by supporting nonprofit organizations offering youth based programs in the areas of education, housing/homelessness, and health programs focused on preventing childhood obesity.

Over the last 24 years more than $18.8 million has been distributed to local nonprofit community organizations through the Orlando Magic Youth Foundation and Orlando Magic Youth Fund (OMYF-MFF), a McCormick Foundation Fund since 1994. The Orlando Magic Youth Foundation raises community dollars annually through donations, 50/50 Drawings, auctions and events such as the Black Tie and Tennies Gala and the OMYF Golf Tournament with matching funds at .50 on the dollar provided by the McCormick Foundation. In 2014, OMYF presented checks totaling $600k+ to 25 nonprofit organizations in celebration of the Magic’s 25th anniversary season.

All proceeds from the event go to OMYF and will help change the lives of children and families in our local community.
