The Detroit Pistons recently selected Jaden Ivey at the No. 5 spot in the 2022 NBA Draft, but the guard has a special family connection to the city. It was all started by Ivey's late grandfather, James E. Hunter, who played for the Detroit Lions as a defensive back and continues to give back to the city through a scholarship program.

Ivey’s grandmother, Emmalene Hunter, still lives in the area and is thrilled to have Ivey here full time to continue to build on the legacy of giving back to the Detroit community through events like the James E. Hunter Golf Classic. It is an annual event, started by the late Hunter to help raise money for student scholarships and is sponsored by the James E. Hunter Association.

Foster Swift litigation attorney, Ray H. Littleton, currently serves as President on the Board of Directors for the James E. Hunter Association. See the full article at Click on Detroit.
