In wake of the tragic mass shooting at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, the Orlando Magic, along with Orlando City Soccer, Orlando Pride, Orlando Solar Bears and Orlando Predators are teaming up to raise money for the OneOrlando Fund.

Starting on June 16th, the Magic will begin selling black and purple t-shirts that say "#OrlandoUnited" on them in their team shop in Amway Center. Shirts will start at $22 for adults, and $18 in youth sizes.

Along with the Magic's team store, shirts will be available on June 16th and 17th at a pop-up store in Downtown Orlando at Wall Street Plaza, the Solar Bears offices and online team shop on June 17th, at Camping World Stadium on June 18th during Orlando City's match against the San Jose Earthquakes, and finally during the Orlando Predators vs Tampa Bay Storm game Friday June 24th at Amway Center.

On Monday, the Magic donated $100,000 to the OneOrlando fund.

Magic CEO Alex Martins had this to say via a team press release.

Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to those personally affected by the loss of loved ones following this weekend’s tragedy of hate in Orlando," said Orlando Magic CEO Alex Martins. "We are proud to join with our fellow professional sports teams to assist those impacted by this tragedy and we will continue to be in contact with the City of Orlando, Red Cross, and our partner agencies such as the Zebra Coalition to provide assistance in our community.
