Do you remember taking economics classes in school where you learned to sew or cook? The Houston Dynamo wants to help bring these classes back into the education system and through a partnership with nonprofit organization the Creativity Shell, they are raising funds (and awareness) in a unique fundraiser called the Creativity Quest on April 27, 2019 at BBVA Compass Stadium.
The Creativity Shell is a nonprofit organization on a mission to use creative trades to educate and inspire the next generation of makers. The organization teaches sewing/ textile arts and other home economics classes to students in public libraries, schools and shelters that rescue children from homelessness and human trafficking. Their classes are designed to educate and inspire children by teaching them essential life and practical skills.
The Creativity Quest is aimed to test your endurance and scavenger hunt skills in a fun, family friendly environment. Participants will have 1 hour to race through dynamo stadium and collect 32 clues (out of 1,000 that will be hidden) to fill all the shapes on a soccer ball map. There will also be one Golden Clue that when found, will automatically win first place!
Participants can register as individuals or can register as a team of five or ten people. After the quest, all participants will receive complimentary tickets and are invited back to Dynamo Stadium that night to watch the Houston Dynamo play the Columbus Crew at 7:30 p.m. [Organizer's description]
