from the past to Amway Center–
(Orlando, Fla., September 12, 2013)— The Orlando Magic recently decked out Amway Center in preparation for its 25th Anniversary “Silver Season.” As part of the season celebration, the team placed banners throughout its home building and around the perimeter mixing the past with the present.
The Magic will unveil its season-long campaign later this month to recognize its “Silver Season.” The campaign will celebrate with the Orlando community the Magic’s success and rich history of legendary moments, players, people and fans while building on an exciting future.
The 25 years of Magic basketball have seen great success for a relatively young franchise including five division championships (1995, 1996, 2008, 2009, 2010), seven 50-plus win seasons and Eastern Conference titles in 1995 and 2009.
In addition to its on-the-court success, the team gives more than $2 million to the local community by way of sponsorships of events, donated tickets, autographed merchandise, scholarships and grants. Including more than $18 million distributed to local nonprofit community organizations through the Orlando Magic Youth Foundation and the Orlando Magic Youth Fund (OMYF-MFF), a McCormick Foundation Fund since 1994. Orlando Magic community relations programs annually impact an estimated 100,000 kids each year, while the OMYF-MFF has positively impacted more than 1 million children. The Magic Volunteer Program (MVP), an organizational staff-wide initiative, provides more than 6,000 community volunteer hours per year.
