Amway Center makes a positive first move

Oct 12, 2010

This week marked the grand opening of the Amway Center in Orlando, the new home for the Orlando Magic and an amazing resource for the local community. 

I had a chance to walk by the Center when I was in town a couple of weeks ago, and was thorougly impressed … and, I must confess, a little proud to see Amway’s name in lights. 

Amway and Amway Center staff also found a way to raise awareness and funds for local causes. The opening gala event raised $300,000 for the Central Florida Commission on Homelessness. In celebration of the grand opening, Amway also announced that it will partner with the Orlando Magic to build a new KaBoom! playground in the Parramore community. 

With a new home and new excitement brewing in Orlando, all we need now is a national championship from the Magic!
