Tobias Harris wins Rich and Helen DeVos Community Enrichment Award

Tobias Harris - Fernando Medina - Orlando Magic

The third-year forward received the honor Saturday.

At the Orlando Magic's annual Black Tie and Tennies Gala on Saturday night, the team named Tobias Harris the recipient of the 2014 Rich and Helen DeVos Community Enrichment Award.

The team presents the award annually to the Magic player "who has dedicated his efforts off the court for the purpose of enhancing other's lives." It comes with a $50,000 donation to the charity of the winner's choice.

In his acceptance speech, Harris thanked his mother, Lisa Harris; Latria Leak, the Magic's assistant director of community relations; and Orlando point guard Jameer Nelson.

Nelson earned the honor in 2013. The year before, Dwight Howard split the award with J.J. Redick, marking Howard's fifth straight win.

The Magic first presented the Community Enrichment Award in 1996, with Nick Anderson as its first winner.
