Do you remember taking economics classes in school where you learned to sew or cook?  The Creativity Shell wants to bring these classes back into the education system and through partnership with the Houston Dynamo, they are raising funds (and awareness) through a unique fundraiser called the Creativity Quest on August 24, 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 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.

Through a unique partnership with the Houston Dynamo, the organization is launching a unique fundraiser called the Creativity Quest. 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 10,000 that will be hidden) to fill all the shapes on a soccer ball. 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 5 or 10 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. Quest participants will also enjoy food and music after the quest.
