The Rocket Mortgage Classic AREA 313 Challenge is helping change the course to provide digital access in Detroit. TOUR players will compete to make an eagle, ace, birdie (3-1-3) on holes 14, 15 and 16 on each of the 4 days of tournament play. The first golfer to achieve this feat will win $313,000 in their name towards RGF charities connected to digital access and Detroit’s digital divide. Rocket Mortgage is taking AREA 313 a step further this year. Anytime a player scores a 3 or 1 or 3 on the respective holes, a direct donation will be made by Rocket Mortgage to the program. An eagle (3) on hole 14 will amount to a $5,000 donation, an ace or hold-in-one on hole 15 is worth a $25,000 donation and a birdie (3) on hole 16 will net a $5,000 donation. It’s estimated that more than $200,000 will be generated by Rocket Mortgage through this effort to be donated to the Rocket Giving Fund who will make decisions on distribution of the funds raised from this promotion. Tournament partner Delta Dental has already pledged $50,000 to the campaign.
In a new world where everything has shifted online, access is not equal. Countless Detroit residents are isolated from opportunities many of us take for granted. COVID-19 has made this issue come to light more than ever. Our primary objective is to serve as a platform to bring awareness to Detroit’s recovery and raise funds to bridge the digital divide in Detroit. In order to address digital inclusion in Detroit, the Rocket Mortgage Classic will make investments in three key areas: technology, broadband access, and digital literacy.
