May 1, 2014

BBVA Compass Stadium, an AEG facility, and Levy Restaurants, the official food and beverage partner of the stadium, are offering fundraising opportunities for local non-profit groups at Houston Dynamo, Houston Dash and other stadium events across the 2014 season. 

Local non-profit organizations have the opportunity to operate a designated concession stand on event days and share in the profits generated during the event.  BBVA Compass Stadium will host a variety of events across the 2014 season including Houston Dynamo and Houston Dash games, Texas Southern college football games, international rugby and soccer matches, concerts and more.
