ORLANDO It was a good run, but after 28 years the Orlando Magic Youth Foundation has decided to hang up the tennis shoes on its Black Tie and Tennies Gala. OMYF hosted its final gala at the Amway Center on Saturday, March 17. The gala serves as a premier fundraising event and on average brought together 700 guests. In 2017, it raised more than $500,000 for Central Florida youth. Guests got to enjoy a multi-course dinner, cocktail reception, live entertainment, silent and live auctions and, of course, interaction with Orlando Magic players and staff.
