The Magic will host the 20th Annual Orlando Magic Championship for Charity Golf Tournament. The event is expected to have more than 200 golf participants, along with one-of-a-kind Magic auction items and an awards luncheon.
Ten children ages 8-16 representing organizations who received grants from the Orlando Magic Youth Fund (Orlando Magic Youth Foundation- McCormick Foundation Fund) will be on-site from 7-8:30 a.m. They will assist the golfers in registration and with the Wyndham Vacation Ownership’s Warm-up Contest. OMYF beneficiaries represented at the course will include: A Gift for Music, Florida Hospital for Children, The Gift of Swimming, The Salvation Army, AMI Kids, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Florida, Jewish Family Services and Orlando Repertory Theatre.
Over the last 21 years nearly $16 million has been distributed to local non-profit community organizations via the Orlando Magic Youth Fund (OMYF-MFF), a McCormick Foundation Fund since 1994, which serves at-risk youth. Earlier this year, the OMYF, in a surprise ceremony, presented checks totaling nearly $700,000 to 23 grantee organizations from three counties in Central Florida (Orange, Seminole and Osceola).
