ORLANDO – Of all the Orlando Magic’s many traditions – from the Amway Center public address announcer bellowing “Stand and Cheer,” to the ubiquitous presence of Nick Anderson, to those ever-classy pinstriped uniforms – this most certainly is the best and most impactful one of all: hundreds of Magic employees giving their time on Thanksgiving morning to help serve breakfast to those at the Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida.
For a 21st consecutive year, the Magic teamed with the Coalition to bring a smile to the faces of more than 700 needy Central Florida people. A hot breakfast with eggs, potatoes, sausage, biscuits and gravy, fruit, pastries, coffee and juice was served throughout the morning. And because the face of homelessness has sadly shifted from the middle-aged male to single parents with kids, a carnival was put on and free haircuts were provided by Paul Mitchell, The School. The annual event is just one of many ways that the Magic have tried to tackle the homelessness epidemic throughout Central Florida. Over the last four years alone the Magic have donated more than $2 million to homelessness causes in Orlando and the surrounding area.
Magic CEO Alex Martins, who manned the sausage station of the food assembly line along with daughters Sophia and Gabrielle, said the Thanksgiving day ritual has become a favorite tradition and a way of life for Orlando’s only big-time pro sports franchise for the past quarter-century. “This is one of my favorite traditions because we’ve been here for 21 years and it’s an opportunity for us to give thanks for all of the graces and blessings that we have as an organization,” Martins said. “We like being able to give back to these folks who wouldn’t have the opportunity to have a meal on Thanksgiving morning otherwise.”
Through the years, the Magic and the Coalition for the Homeless have established quite a partnership as they work to help the underserved. In 2013, the Orlando Magic Youth Foundation awarded a $50,000 grant to the Coalition as part of the $1 million in money that it gave to 19 local nonprofit organizations. And for a second straight year, Magic Head Coach Jacque Vaughn paid for the 700 meals that were served to happy folks at the shelter.
Brent Trotter, the president and CEO for the Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida, said his organization couldn’t serve nearly as many people as it does without the generosity of the Magic. Last fiscal year, the Coalition served more than 300,000 meals, assisted 565 families and provided services to more than 4,000 individuals. More than 650 people call the Coalition home on a given night.
“For the Magic to do this for 21 years, it’s phenomenal. Some organizations don’t even enjoy short-term relationships, but over the years there’s been such a partnership forged with the Orlando Magic that there’s almost an expectation on our part to see the players, coaches and management helping us out,” Trotter said. “It’s a huge friendship that we have.”
The Magic were well-represented at the event with 175 employees volunteering to serve food. Meanwhile, GM Rob Hennigan, Martins, Vaughn, assistant coaches James Borrego and Brett Gunning, star rookie Victor Oladipo and veteran power forward Jason Maxiell worked in one of the two food lines. Vaughn was in charge of potatoes, while Oladipo was scooping eggs, Maxiell was dishing out gravy, Gunning and Borrego took turns tearing apart biscuits and Hennigan was picking pastries. Vaughn said it meant the world to him to see faces light up with joy when people at the Coalition realized that people care about them.
“This is extremely important. We talk about having a connection with the community – not only on the floor, but with things we can do with the people in our neighborhood. This is pretty special,” said Vaughn, whose Magic (6-9) have won two straight games and host San Antonio on Friday at 7 p.m. “There are a lot of people who are in unfortunate situations and on a morning like this to see a family be able to eat together and share a meal together, it’s nice to see.”
Oladipo hit the floor several times and played a career-most 42 minutes on Wednesday night – his fourth game in a five-night stretch – yet he was up just after sunrise on Wednesday to make sure he was a part of the Magic’s Thanksgiving day tradition. He said in addition to dreaming about playing in the NBA for years, he also envisioned a time in his life when he would be able to give back to those in need. He was all smiles on Wednesday and said that he couldn’t stress the importance of the day enough.
“This is all a part of the dream for me of being in the NBA. You dream about being in the NBA and playing against the best in the world, but it’s about the giving-back process, too,” said Oladipo, the No. 2 pick in last June’s NBA Draft and a cornerstone piece of the franchise. “It’s always fun to make people smile and feel good. I’m blessed and honored to be here. They asked me if I wanted to do this and before they could finish, I said, ‘Yeah!
“This is like being a part of something bigger than yourself,” Oladipo continued. “Being able to give back to people who are less fortunate, it’s why God put us on this Earth. … For the people here to be happy and put a smile on their face, that means more than any game that we play or win. It’s a pretty amazing feeling.”Magic forward Glen “Big Baby” Davis was also on hand at the event, bouncing around at the carnival outside with kids. Because the downturn in the economy has hit families especially hard, approximately 25 percent of the residents at the Coalition are children with an average age of eight years old.
Davis was his carefree and gregarious self on Thursday, playing games and posing for pictures with children. He said it warmed his heart by giving others who need a helping hand.“To be able to have positive impact on a kid’s life is just so great,” said Davis, who had 19 points and five rebounds in Orlando’s defeat of Philadelphia on Wednesday night. “You never know what your influence can do for that child later in life, so it’s all about helping out. We’re here on this Earth to try and make it a better place.”
Trotter, who serves on several boards throughout Central Florida, said the Magic go above and beyond to make the Central Florida community a better place to live. He said signs of the Magic’s generosity are spread throughout the region and they impact thousands of lives each year. “I often wonder if the Magic are a basketball team that is involved in the community or if they are someone so very focused on our community who just so happens to also have a basketball team. Everywhere you go in this community you see the fingerprints of the Magic. Certainly, they are here with us at the Coalition for the Homeless, but they’ve also built the community gyms and the playgrounds in our community. Everywhere you go you see the Magic giving back to our community and investing in our community. We wouldn’t be the community that we are without the Orlando Magic being here, no doubt.”

Mayor Buddy Dyer invited Central Florida residents and visitors to join him and his Veterans Advisory Council to honor the courageous men and women of our armed forces at the 14th annual Orlando Veterans Day Parade on Saturday, November 9, 2013, in Downtown Orlando.
Orlando, FL– The Orlando Magic have formed partnership deals with best-in-class national and local corporations that span a wide-variety of categories, including telecommunications, insurance, automobile, electronics, athletic apparel/footwear, hotel and resorts, office products/equipment and pizza/quick service restaurant, Chief Executive Officer Alex Martins announced today.

Throughout the years, our Central Florida region has joined together in historic partnerships to not only create, but to accomplish a shared vision for the future of our community. From the development of our Medical City at Lake Nona, to our world-class community venues, to SunRail, our regional leaders’ willingness to work together has resulted in several milestone accomplishments for Orlando in a short period of time.
Last night, we celebrated another milestone for our community as the Orange County Board of Commissioners voted to approve a funding package to allow for the construction of a new Downtown Orlando soccer stadium, a vital step in bringing Major League Soccer (MLS) to Orlando and the first MLS team in the southeast. The package also provides additional funding for the Orange County Convention Center, Florida Citrus Bowl, the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, Visit Orlando and the Central Florida Sports Commission.
Approval of this funding package will greatly benefit our region in several ways, including new business opportunities for our local companies, new jobs for our residents and by bringing even more visitors to our region. The hospitality industry remains the backbone of our economy and increasing domestic and international travel is critical to ensuring the economic growth of Central Florida.
Through the ownership of Orlando City Soccer, we have a unique opportunity to bring a world of soccer fans and their economic impact to Central Florida’s front door. The approved funding package also ensures that the Central Florida Sports Commission and Visit Orlando have the resources they need to draw new events and grow the number of international visitors to our community.
We have already seen the caliber of events we can attract to Orlando with the Amway Center including the NBA All-Star Game, World Championship Boxing and NCAA Basketball Tournaments. With a new performing arts center, enhanced Citrus Bowl and soccer-specific stadium, we have the ability to host hundreds of more events and attract millions of additional visitors to our region each year.
The visitors who attend these events spend money at our local businesses which equates to new jobs and opportunities for everyone in Orlando and generates sales tax revenues that have benefits across the entire state of Florida. In addition, many of the businesses who call Orlando home tell us that one of the top reasons for choosing Central Florida is our high quality of life and amenities like our hometown sports teams, community venues and the soon-to-open SunRail.
I would like to thank Mayor Jacobs and the Orange County Board of Commissioners for their continued partnership. The results of our partnership will provide benefits for our local community for generations to come. I would also like to thank the Orlando City Council, Seminole County Commission and the leaders of our tourism industry for supporting our collective vision for a City with world-class amenities that can be enjoyed by our residents and visitors alike.

-Five dollars from every ticket purchased to the Oct. 20 game throughorlandomagic.com/pink will support the funding of mammograms; Magic encourage fans to wear pink to Oct. 20 game-
The Orlando Magic and Florida Hospital have teamed up to host Pink in the Paint Breast Cancer Awareness Night on October 20 at the Magic vs. Pistons matchup, tip-off set for 6:00 p.m. The night will feature a “VIP Pink” pregame reception for more than 100 breast cancer survivors, pink Magic T-shirts to the first 4,000 fans, “bam-bam” sticks at the door to the next 5,000 fans and the Magic coaching staff will wear pink ties during the game. Six Central Florida breast cancer survivors will be the featured honorees at the game (story at bottom) taking part in the high-five lineup with the players during introductions. FanFest outside on Church Street pregame will include Florida Hospital’s Pink Army mobile mammogram unit for mammograms on-site, local breast cancer awareness groups’ information tables, games and a DJ. The Magic are also encouraging fans to wear pink to the game.
Leading up to the night, the Magic will donate five dollars for every ticket purchased throughorlandomagic.com/pink to support the funding of mammograms and treatment for underserved women in Orlando. With Central Florida holding the highest rate of stage IV breast cancer in the state, the Magic’s “Pink in the Paint” Night presented by Florida Hospital provides a way to continue the team’s health and wellness efforts, one of the Magic’s three community focus areas.
Big Magic Surprise for Six Courageous Women

Often the most gratifying and inspiring stories in sports are when admired athletes overcome the most daunting of challenges. Take Magic Johnson, for instance. Sure, he’s honored for all the MVPs, championships, All-Star Game appearances and other accolades throughout his playing career. But really, his unwillingness to surrender to an assumed-to-be life-ending disease is what’s adored the most.
Or Eric Davis, who didn’t let an unfortunate sickness ruin his love to play baseball. Despite being diagnosed with colon cancer during the 1997 MLB season, Davis would return that same year and hit a game-winning homerun in the playoffs.
It’s that kind of bravery that the Orlando Magic marvel at as well. So much so that they partnered with Florida Hospital recently to honor and reward six amazing women who all overcame an incredibly difficult barrier. And like those star athletes who are applauded and appreciated time and time again for their courage and fortitude, the same can be done for these strong and resilient women.
They each were once breast cancer patients. Now, they are survivors and heroes. And onOctober 20 at Amway Center when the Magic host the Detroit Pistons in preseason action, they will be acknowledged, each of them, for their big victories.
The honorees of “Pink in the Paint” night – Liz Duncan, Becky Mulligan, Asja Cotton, Jeri Francoeur, Mandy Kimmer and Tai Harden-Moore – learned of this on Thursday, Oct. 3 when Magic Community Ambassadors Nick Anderson and Bo Outlaw surprised them with the exciting news.
Not only will all six women attend the game but they also will participate in the Magic’s player introductions and will be recognized at a pregame reception and during a special halftime presentation.
“Now that we have all the awareness and the support it is just so exciting to be a part of it,” said Cotton, who works for Florida Hospital as a mammography technician and is also a personal fitness trainer. “I can’t wait to see STUFF (Magic mascot) dance.”
“I’m filled with emotion, this is really special,” said Mulligan, a breast cancer survivor of four years. “Each day is a blessing and I feel like a stronger person because of what I went through.”
For 25 years, the Magic have assisted in enriching the lives of many throughout Central Florida. Anderson, a Magic legend on the court and an even bigger guidance off of it, has helped aid thousands of people since becoming a Magic community ambassador.
“To put a smile on a face is special,” Anderson said. “Attending these events puts things in perspective about life. I say be grateful, be thankful.”

Dear Brazilian friends, good afternoon. It was a pleasure to spend time with all of you at the Breakfast and/or Business After Hours of the Brazilian Chamber of Commerce. I encourage you to join me to call Florida House and Senate to pass a sales tax rebate legislation that will help us to build a new soccer stadium and compete to obtain a Major League Soccer franchise. Please, read the letter below.
Mayor Dyer and the City of Orlando are working hard to secure a Major League Soccer franchise for Florida. Opportunities to add a top tier professional sports franchise to the state are very rare, and cities from across the country are competing with Florida right now for the economic investment and exciting quality-of-life amenity that a professional sports franchise can offer.
Due to the rapid growth in soccer’s popularity, MLS has publically announced expansion of their league with a desire to have a team located in Orlando. MLS’s possible expansion into Florida will depend on the selected cities being able to build soccer-ready stadiums for their expansion team. To help fund a soccer-ready stadium, the City is seeking legislation from the State of Florida that would provide a sales tax rebate for the stadium. This funding is no different than what is currently offered to all other major league sports teams in Florida.
There are only seven days left in the 2013 session in Tallahassee, but legislation to give MLS equal standing with the other professional sports leagues in Florida is currently stalled in the Florida House of Representatives.
If legislation does not get passed this year it is likely MLS will choose to locate their expansion team in Atlanta rather than in Orlando. This means Orlando and the entire State of Florida will lose the opportunity to create new jobs, generate additional international travel, especially from Brazil, and highlight Florida to the millions of international fans that make soccer the most popular sport in the world.
We need YOU, along with your co-workers, friends and family, to help break through the logjam. Below is information on how to contact Speaker Weatherford’s office along with additional background on the impact Major League Soccer would have here in Orlando and across our region and state.
HERE’S HOW YOU CAN HELP – PLEASE TAKE THIS ACTION NOW OR FIRST THING TOMORROW!
Please call and email House Speaker Will Weatherford and Senate President Don Gaetz’s office using the number and email link below
Senate President Gaetz
WHY MAJOR LEAGUE SOCCER?
In the past decade, Major League Soccer (MLS) has quickly surpassed other professional sports in popularity, boasting higher attendance than both the NBA and NHL – and surprisingly MLS doesn’t have any teams in the Southeast region of the country.
Orlando and Florida are competing for an expansion team with cities like New York, Atlanta, Washington D.C., and Minneapolis.
Flavio Augusto da Silva, a Brazilian businessman, recently acquired the majority ownership interest in Orlando City Soccer and is looking to bring thousands of international soccer fans and their economic impact to Central Florida’s front door. This also positions Orlando to become the U.S. soccer destination for all Latino soccer fans.
The hospitality industry remains the backbone of Central Florida’s economy and international travel is critical to ensuring the economic growth of Central Florida. Take for example, in 2009, when TAM airlines added a direct flight from Saó Paulo, Brazil to Orlando, the Mall at Millenia and the Prime Outlet Malls immediately saw double digit increases in sales.
We have the rare opportunity for a second major league professional sports franchise to call Orlando home and if we don’t seize this opportunity now we could lose it forever.
ABOUT THE LEGISLATION:
The primary bill being discussed is Senate Bill 306, relating to economic development – though other bills in both chambers propose various development incentives for professional sports development in Florida.
The legislation would treat MLS like all other professional sports leagues for purposes of a sales tax rebate to help finance the construction of a soccer-specific stadium in downtown Orlando.
The sales tax rebate comes from new sales tax revenues generated by the new stadium – it does not redirect existing sales tax revenues.
The legislation being proposed adds new accountability measures to the existing rebate program.
This new legislation ensures that the economic activity promised is actually achieved.

SOLAR BEARS HELP LAUNCH HIGH SCHOOL HOCKEY LEAGUE IN CENTRAL FLORIDA
League Promotes Growth and Awareness of Hockey in Community
Orlando, FL – The Orlando Solar Bears announced today that they have partnered with the Central Florida High School Hockey League (CFHSHL) in promoting and developing high school hockey in the Central Florida. The student-athletes playing in the CFHSHL will register with USA Hockey and will follow its rules.
“The Central Florida High School Hockey League Board of Directors and Coaches are very excited to partner with the Orlando Solar Bears,” said Julio Guerra, President of the CFHSHL. “The relationship aligns the goals of both organizations by expanding the great sport of ice hockey in our community. CFHSHL’s Inaugural 2013 season will see seven (7) regional teams and over 100 student-athletes competing from Seminole, Orange, Brevard, Volusia, Osceola, Lake, Duval and other counties. We anticipate rapid growth and are grateful to have the Solar Bears involvement and support.”
To aid new and prospective players with the initial start-up expenses, the Central Florida High School Hockey League made the entry fee reasonable, and will provide equipment swaps and inexpensive skills clinics. The Solar Bears are providing jerseys and socks for the teams. The Orange and Seminole County jerseys will sport the CFHSHL logo crest with the Solar Bears logo on the upper right chest. The league continues the growth of high school hockey in Florida by establishing the Solar Bears Conference to join with South Florida‘s Panthers Conference and the Lightning Conference in Tampa Bay. The majority of the games will be played at the Solar Bears practice facility, the RDV Sportsplex Ice Den in Orlando, and the seven teams in the conference will compete for the Solar Bears Championship Cup. The Championship Game is scheduled to be played on Saturday, June 22.
“We have a long list of community based goals and objectives, with the growth of youth hockey right there at the top of that list,” said Solar Bears Managing Partner, Jason Siegel. “Our involvement and sponsorship of High School Hockey along with our participation in youth ‘house leagues’ at RDV, SpaceCoast, and Daytona represents another step toward achieving those goals. Youth hockey participation has grown incrementally this past season since the Solar Bears first took the ice back in October of 2012 and this League will provide yet another outlet to showcase the talent of these high school-aged student-athletes.”
The CFHSHL completed a “pilot” season last year featuring 75 high school students residing in five different counties surrounding Orlando. This number is expected to grow to over 100 participants this year, with the eventual goal to see each high school have the ability to field a team exclusively made up of their own students. In turn this will increase the awareness, participation, and accessibility of hockey in Central Florida.
Student-athletes from 38 different High Schools will skate in the CFHSHL: Apopka, Atlantic, Berkshire, Bishop Kenny, Boone, Connections Academy, Crooms, DeLand, Deltona Christian, Dr. Phillips, East Ridge, Eustis, Father Lopez, Fleming Island, FLVS, Freedom, Hagerty, Lake Brantley, Lake Highland Prep, Lake Mary, Lake Nona, Lyman, Mainland, Mandarin, Monteverde Academy, Oviedo, Pace Brantley, Phantom Trail, Seminole, Seminole Virtual, Spruce Creek, St. Cloud, Timber Creek, University, Weikva, West Orange, Winter Park, and Yulee High.
The Orlando Solar Bears, the ECHL affiliate of the NHL’s Minnesota Wild and Des Moines, Iowa, AHL, play all of their home games at the 2012 Street and Smith’s Sports Business Journal Sports Facility of the Year, the Amway Center.
