As part of our charter, the Dark Clouds give any money left on the books at the end of the year to one selected soccer-related charity. Additionally, during the player awards banquet held in conjunction with the team, items donated by players, staff, front office members and your fellow Dark Clouds are sold by a silent auction to raise money for the same charity. Last year the Dark Clouds raised over $1500 for Team4Sly.
Team4Sly is the charity dedicated to help former Thunder player John Sylvester with expenses related to ALS. Many Dark Clouds have fond memories of “Sly” both in his playing days and in his subsequent support of the Minnesota soccer community. Therefore, the Dark Clouds board of directors has chosen Team4Sly as our charity of choice again for 2012.
