Orlando Magic Release New Specialty License Plate
*A portion of the proceeds to benefit the Orlando Magic Youth Foundation*
Orlando, Fla.— The Orlando Magic announce the release of a new specialty license plate, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the Orlando Magic Youth Foundation. The plate can be purchased at any authorized motor vehicle office. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles also offers the opportunity to purchase gift certificates for speciality plates.
The Orlando Magic Youth Foundation (OMYF) is committed to helping children in Central Florida realize their full potential, especially those most at-risk, by supporting programs and partnerships that empower families and change lives.
In addition, over the last 21 years, the Orlando Magic Youth Foundation has raised community dollars resulting in more than $16 million distributed to local non-profit community agencies serving at-risk youth through programs focusing on education, arts and reducing childhood obesity. In 1994, the Orlando Magic Youth Foundation partnered with the McCormick Foundation to establish the Orlando Magic Youth Fund, a McCormick Foundation Fund (OMYF-MFF). Proceeds from the Orlando Magic Youth Foundation fundraising efforts go to the Fund and are matched at fifty cents on the dollar by the McCormick Foundation.
The Orlando Magic Youth Foundation raises community dollars annually through donations, auctions and events such as the Black Tie and Tennies Gala and the OMYF Golf Tournament with matching funds provided by the McCormick Foundation. In 2011, the OMYF-MFF presented checks totaling $1 million to 19 non-profit organizations from three counties in Central Florida and will award scholarships totaling $30,000.
