Magic sign autographs for community

Orlando's players and coaches took time Monday to autograph more than a thousand items for schools, nonprofits, and other charitable events.

Following Monday's practice, the Orlando Magic's players and coaches took the Amway Center floor, but not to hoop: instead, they lined up to autograph--using the Ticonderoga Redisharp Permanent Marker, the official autograph marker of the team--more than one thousand items for charity. Among these items are basketballs, shoes, jerseys, photos, art, and other Magic merchandise. These items, worth an estimated $350,000, will be given to community organizations throughout the season.

The Magic estimate that they give more than $2 million annually--via ticket donations, scholarships, event sponsorships, grants, and other means--to charitable organizations throughout the Orlando community.

The Orlando Magic Youth Fund, part of the McCormick Foundation since 1994, has distributed more than $17 million to local charitable organizations over the last 22 seasons.
