Here is the official word from the Orlando Magic:
**The 21st Annual OMYF Open to benefit the Orlando Magic Youth Foundation**
WHO: Orlando Magic staff, talent and celebrities
WHAT: OMYF Open, benefiting the Orlando Magic Youth Foundation
The Magic will host the 21st Annual OMYF Open 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.
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.
