In a move that will leave a significant and positive impact on the Billings' economy, the Billings Tourism Business Improvement District (TBID) awarded more than $100,000, in an effort to continue tourism growth in Billings.
Approximately $100,000 was awarded to MetraPark specifically for Montana High School Association sporting events for 2013, 2014 and 2015. These dollars are contributed to off-set tournament costs to MetraPark and secure these events for Billings. When compared to the support offered in 2012, this deal comprises a 50% increase in support for 2013 events and a 100% increase in support for 2014 events. TBID Board Chairman Steve Wahrlich, owner of the Best Western Clock Tower Inn & Suites, said, "With direct and indirect expenses, the TBID Board will spend nearly 20% of its budget on MetraPark events in the current fiscal year for the benefit of the Yellowstone County economy." Wahrlich added, "So far, from 2009 through 2015, the Billings TBID has paid, or has committed to pay, MetraPark and its tenants nearly $500,000 to bring visitors to Billings."

In just a few weeks, the 2013 Billings St. Jude Dream Home house will go from dream to reality as construction on the house progresses. Image Builders is leading construction on the home located in the Ironwood Estates neighborhood of Billings.
Subcontractors and suppliers have been incredibly supportive and have embraced the mission of St. Jude, commented Greg Schmidt, co-owner Image Builders. "The building industry doesn't often have such a unique opportunity to give back to the community, so the St. Jude Dream Home has been a great way to mobilize everyone behind an important cause."
