BIZKID$ WILL NOT PARTNER
WITH SEATTLE PARKS AND RECREATION
BizKid$ has chosen to withdraw from a proposed partnership that would have rented part of Queen Anne Community Center to the television production company. The company will not move into Queen Anne Community Center as had been planned.
Seattle Parks and Recreation had reached out to BizKid$ and proposed a partnership that would have expanded revenue to continue Parks and Recreation programs, and expand financial literacy for children in the Queen Anne neighborhood and throughout the City.
For more information, contact BizKid$ Executive Producer Jamie Hammond at 206-390-1906.
