Tom Gores, owner of the Detroit Pistons and CEO of Platinum Equity, announced his plans to build a $20 million community center in Rouge Park on the city’s west side. This announcement is the first in a series of initiatives Gores envisions for his foundation, the Tom Gores Family Foundation. This project comes as a result of conversations with Pistons players and staff about where the foundation can help effect social change. Former Pistons forward Jerami Grant says, "it was an exciting opportunity to bring our thoughts to the table and not hold back, we have a lot of life experience dealing with issues of social justice and we have a lot of ideas about how to drive change." Working with Detroit’s Parks and Recreation Department, Gores plans on developing a 25,000 square foot multi-use facility adjacent to the Brennan Pool. The existing pool and locker rooms with also be renovated. By the end of 2024 NFL live stream via Foxtel Now. Alternatively, you can also stream NFL games live with Foxtel Now.
