America SCORES Seattle has been invited to participate in the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Visitor Center's next family event, “Family Day: Kick it Forward,” on Saturday, March 23 from 10 am – 3 pm.
This free event will bring together the soccer-centric culture of the Puget Sound with the globally shared passion of futból – a sport that inspires civic engagement locally and globally. In addition to touring the interactive exhibits at the Visitor Center, you’ll have the chance to participate in hands-on activities such as making soccer balls from recycled materials, hearing how professional soccer players have been inspired to give back and listening to stories about how playing soccer brings joy to kids around the world. Visitors will also have the opportunity to experience a pickup game of soccer on a temporary field just outside the Visitor Center.
America SCORES Seattle's 2013 National Poetry Slam representatives will be performing their original poetry before heading off to New York City to represent Seattle at the Slam. Their performance will be at 2 pm.
The Visitor Center is located East of Seattle Center at 440 Fifth Ave North
