Crain's Detroit: Detroit Homecoming to host reception at Ilitch School

Ford Motor Co. Executive Chairman Bill Ford Jr. will open up about the automaker's plans for its $740 million planned investment in Corktown and the Michigan Central Station to kick off Detroit Homecoming V next month. The opening fireside chat and dinner will take place Sept. 12 on the covered ice of Little Caesars Arena followed by a reception at Wayne State University's new Mike Ilitch School of Business nearby. Detroit Homecoming is a three-day event produced by Crain's Detroit Business that brings former Detroiters back to the city each year to get them to re-engage in the city — and consider investing in Detroit.
