Loved getting back to Detroit to see my friends at @RocketMortgage to learn more about the work they’re doing to bridge the digital divide. Just found out they raised more than $2.7 MILLION at the Rocket Mortgage Classic to help Detroiters get access to internet and technology! Aloha J Directed By @da_bray Edit By @chrissyrabe
Hollywood star Jason Momoa has a passion for Detroit, so when he learned about what Rocket Mortgage was doing alongside the city to bridge the digital divide, he wanted to learn more. Recently, Jason visited Detroit to talk with Rocket Mortgage Chief Marketing Officer Casey Hurbis about the Rocket Mortgage Classic’s “Changing the Course” initiative, which raised $2.7 million this year for nonprofit organizations, including $2.1 million specifically for the Connect 313 Fund.
Jason also toured the city with Josh Edmonds, Director of Digital Inclusion for the City of Detroit, to learn more about the important progress being made to connect the community and ensure all Detroit residents can access the digital world and the opportunity it brings.
