FRIDAY NIGHT: Fight the Fear Campaign, Seattle Storm, the Seattle Police Foundation, the South Park Plumb, Level & Square Foundation, and Seattle Parks and Recreation have rallied together to create new basketball courts at the South Park Community Center. A goal of the South Park Action Agenda, these courts fulfill a recreational need in South Park and illustrate how a public-private partnership can work to create a better community for our youth. The community is invited to celebrate on July 23, 2010 from 5:30 – 7 p.m. at the South Park Community Center. The neighborhood is encouraged to check out the basketball courts and restored tennis court, participate in the official “first basket,” and enjoy some refreshments provided by the South Park Community Center. Storm members Le’Coe Willingham and Abby Bishop, along with Adia Barnes from the 2004 championship team, will run a basketball clinic for South Park youth from 5:45 – 6:45. This project honors the life of Teresa Butz, who was tragically murdered in July of 2009. It illustrates the determination of community members to help South Park heal. Fight the Fear Campaign was formed after Butz’s death and provided $5,000 seed money for the project.
