Maurice Harkless - Gary Bassing - Orlando Magic

The 24th annual event, which the team hosted Saturday at Amway Center, yielded more than half a million dollars for charity.

The Orlando Magic enjoyed their day off Saturday by hosting the 24th annual Black Tie and Tennies Gala at Amway Center. According to the team, the event raised $564,000 for the Orlando Magic Youth Foundation. More than 700 people attended the Gala, which featured auctions, food, and the opportunity for fans to hang out with Magic coaches and players.

The presentation of the Rich and Helen DeVos Community Enrichment Award highlighted the night, with Tobias Harris capturing the honor, which includes a $50,000 prize from the Rich and Helen DeVos Foundation for Harris to present to a charity of his choosing.

"Through these funds raised and the collaborative efforts of the DeVos Family, our players, coaches, staff, corporate partners, season-ticket holders and fans at the Orlando Magic Youth Foundation Gala, we hope we will someday make champions of our youth who are at-risk in our community," Magic CEO Alex Martins said.

The Magic have raised $18.8 million for the Orlando Magic Youth Foundation and the Orlando Magic Youth Fund over the last 24 years, the team says.
