ORLANDO, Fla. (FOX 35 ORLANDO) - The Orlando Magic on Tuesday announced it will dedicate its home court at Amway Center to its late Senior Chairman, Rich DeVos and his late wife, Helen DeVos, who passed away on Sept. 6, 2018 at the age of 92 and Oct. 18, 2017 at the age of 90, respectively.
The Magic's home parquet will permanently feature a "Rich and Helen DeVos Court" memorial insignia.
"From the beginning, Mr. and Mrs. DeVos' vision was that the team and organization would serve as a platform to improve the Central Florida community," said Orlando Magic CEO Alex Martins. "That legacy will certainly live on, both in the Orlando Magic's community efforts and philanthropic contributions, as well as in the way we strive to play the game with passion, a strong work ethic and integrity, while also bringing people together from all walks of life. Our court will now forever commemorate Mr. and Mrs. DeVos who made that vision a reality."
The DeVos family purchased the Orlando Magic in September of 1991.
