SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

Basketball Hall-of-Famer and Michigan-native Ervin "Magic" Johnson will be in Saginaw on Tuesday as part of the Saginaw Promise foundation's fundraiser "The Magic of a Promise."

It is the second consecutive year that Johnson will be in town as part of the event. Last year, the fundraiser raised more than $170,000 for the nonprofit organization.

Johnson has ties to the area as his company, Sodexo MAGIC, Inc., has been contracted to handle the food and maintenance services within the Saginaw Public Schools system.

The event starts with a VIP reception for sponsors at 5 p.m. followed by a strolling dinner starting at 5:30 p.m.

The presentation will begin at 7:30 p.m.

Dinner tickets are still available at a cost of $125 per person. Tickets for just the presentation are $25. TV5's Katie O'Mara will emcee the event.
