At the Orlando Magic’s annual Black Tie & Tennis Gala, Magic guard Victor Oladipo was named the winner of the 2015-2016 Rich & Helen DeVos Community Enrichment Award. This is the second time that Oladipo has won the award.
Each year, the Gala serves as a fundraiser for the Orlando Magic Youth Foundation.
Oladipo has consistently volunteered his time off the court and to the Central Florida community supporting the Magic’s mission to be World Champions on and off the court delivering legendary moments every step of the way. In addition to supporting the Magic’s initiatives and implementing his own, Oladipo has assisted the Orlando Magic Youth Foundation and the NBA in their community goals as well.
The gala raised $650,700 with matching funds at .50 on the dollar provided by the McCormick Foundation. All proceeds benefit the OMYF, which supports nonprofit organizations offering youth-based programs in the areas of education, housing/homelessness and health programs focused on preventing childhood obesity.
