Amrock Sponsors 2021 Rocket Mortgage Classic
July 7, 2021
After making history in 2019 as the first PGA TOUR® event ever held in the city of Detroit, the Rocket Mortgage Classic returned to the city for a third year with a spectacular turnout June 28 – July 4.
The event took place on the beautiful grounds of the Detroit Golf Club. Along with sister company and digital closing leader Nexsys Technologies, Amrock was proud to sponsor the event and help raise funds benefitting multiple non-profit organizations within the community.
“We’re proud to have supported such a revitalizing and exciting event in the city of Detroit by being a sponsor,” said Steve Nadolski, Vice President of Amrock Commercial. “The Rocket Mortgage Classic is a great example of how organizations throughout the city can come together not only to put on a premier PGA TOUR event, but to create opportunity for Detroit residents in the process.”
In 2020, the Rocket Mortgage Classic announced its multi-year Changing the Course initiative in conjunction with title sponsor Rocket Mortgage. During the first year of this initiative, the Rocket Mortgage Classic was able to invest $2.4 million to launch the Connect 313 Fund, which drives digital inclusion across Detroit.
A primary goal of the Connect 313 initiative is the streamlining of access to the Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB), a federal program that subsidizes the cost of internet and technological devices for eligible households in Detroit.
“The teams that organized this year’s Rocket Mortgage Classic went above and beyond in creating a safe and fun environment for people to once again enjoy this PGA TOUR event,” said Nadolski. “It’s great to see Detroit opening back up, and to see the impact an event like this can have on the city and its residents.”
