A professional golfer who thought he was getting paid for his work is suing the nonprofit foundation that thought he was volunteering. Charles Foster says he's owed money by the Next Vision Foundation, which was founded and is run by Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick's sister, Ayanna.
Foster conducted a golf clinic as part of the Chris Williams Golf Outing in June 2004. "Mr. Foster never had a contract with the Foundation," said Ms. Kilpatrick, who says she thought he had volunteered his time. Foster seeks $25,000 plus attorneys' fees.
