Monday night I had the pleasure of doing these 4 awesome things:
- Celebrating the LadyBallers website launch (yay!)
- Meeting Kevin Holden - the Magic television host! (Lord knows, Colleen and I searched all over the place last week at the Magic vs. Pacers game)
- Hanging out with Bo Outlaw - listening to him sing, dancing, talk about how much he loves Texas, and how everyone that lives in Florida is so care free because *enter Bo singing and using spirit fingers* "IT'S SUNNY!!!!!"
- Supporting the Orlando Magic Youth Foundation (OMYF)
There are so many great programs associated with the Orlando Magic, such as the Magic Volunteer Program (MVP), Seats for Soldiers, community enrichment programs, but the Orlando Magic Youth Foundation (OMYF) really stuck out to me. I have a special place in my heart for all things education (seeing that I work with primarily educators) so when I found out that OMYF awards three college scholarships on an annual basis totaling $30,000 -- I was excited and impressed.
OMYF offers a TON of charitable events (including the watch party we had at Tastings), Championship Charity golf tournament, License Plate program (who wouldn't want a Magic license plate?), auctions and raffles, Black Tie & Tennis Charity Gala, and so much more. With all of these charitable events, they are not only able to give out scholarships, but they're able to give back to the community - generously and frequently, supporting all of Central Florida!
So, whether Bo Outlaw is dunking on Colleen Burns or not, you should head on over to the Orlando Magic Youth Foundation website, and see how you can help or join them at the next watch party! There's nothing better than hanging out with awesome people, watching an awesome sport, and supporting an awesome charity.
