The Orlando Magic Youth Foundation’s Black Tie and Tennies charity gala at the Amway Center raised $505,000 for the foundation’s efforts to provide educational, arts and health programs for local youngsters. More than 700 guests attended the March 24 event, which featured gourmet food, auctions and interaction with Magic players, coaches and executives. 

Dwight Howard and J.J. Redick received the Rich and Helen DeVos Community Enrichment Award for their efforts off the court in the Central Florida community. Each received $50,000 to donate to a charity of his choice. The McCormick Foundation matched 50 percent of the amount the event raised.
