Orlando, FL (February 11, 2009)  – The Orlando Magic Youth Fund (OMYF), a fund of the McCormick Foundation, presented checks to 26 of this year’s 27 grantee organizations from nine counties in Central Florida (Orange, Seminole, Osceola, Brevard, Volusia, Flagler, Lake, Polk and Sumter) at halftime of the Wednesday, February 11 game vs. the Denver Nuggets (tip-off at 7:00 p.m.).  With funds raised by the OMYF, and the match provided by the McCormick  Foundation, a total of $751,000 in grants and scholarships were distributed to the community this month through OMYF.

The beneficiaries were recommended by the OMYF “VIP” Committee and then approved by the McCormick Foundation’s Board of Directors after an extensive five-phase process which began in July of 2008.
