We’re excited to host a fundraising stream with @RocketMortgage towards a new initiative for the city of Detroit, Connect 313.

From employment to education to healthcare, reliable access to technology and high-speed internet access is essential for participation in today’s society. That’s why Rocket Mortgage stepped up to support the launch of Connect 313 through the Rocket Mortgage Classic’s “Changing the Course” initiative. They believe that nobody in Detroit should go without the resources they deserve to participate fully and equally in the digital world.
But Rocket Mortgage hasn’t stopped there, inviting their friends (including Hollywood superstar Jason Momoa) to join the movement to bridge Detroit’s digital divide too. Today, we’re excited to share a new partnership from Rocket Mortgage and the esports powerhouse 100 Thieves that will raise awareness and funds to help support Connect 313.
Today at 1:00pm ET, 100 Thieves will be doing a special charity stream featuring some of their top content creators. As part of the stream, 100 Thieves will be randomly giving away their new jersey to participants. Check out the video at the top of the post to learn more about this unique partnership and how you can participate.
This is a great opportunity to watch the top streamers from 100 Thieves play games and show your support for the important work happening to ensure every Detroit resident is connected to the digital world and the opportunity it brings. Check out the full event at Tiltify beginning at 1:00pm!
