Members of various Cleveland-area churches boarded buses Tuesday and headed to Detroit to try and find Dan Gilbert, the owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

They are concerned that Cuyahoga County Council could soon spend $140 million to renovate the Quicken Loans Arena where the Cavs play.

The crowd, which included about 200 people, would like to instead see the money go into renovating inner-city neighborhoods.

It was around lunch time when they made it to a park on Woodward Avenue, across the street from the headquarters for Quicken Loans, which Gilbert founded.

Donnesha Cooper, the mother of Alianna DeFreeze, was among them. Earlier this year Alianna was abducted and murdered on her way to school.
