For our upcoming NIGHT of HOPE & CARING fundraiser for the Sioux Falls School District, the Sioux Falls Storm are proud to announce that WILSON KUBWAYO, who basically grew up in a Tanzania refugee camp from ages 2-13, will serve as the Half Time Keynote Speaker at our Saturday, March 25th home game at the Premier Center. Wilson's family would eventually migrate to the United States through Tuscon, Arizona in 2008 and shortly thereafter relocated to South Dakota.  In his own words, Wilson says: ?Refugee camp taught me lessons that no man can teach!? Wilson will share his experiences with Storm fans about living in poverty both in and outside the refugee camps. While attending local Sioux Falls schools, Wilson, in his own words, began to ask himself tough questions such as ?What was I put here to accomplish? How do I go about finding my purpose? When should I begin living a purposeful life?? "Wilson's story about overcoming adversity, and breaking the cycle, will help inspire thousands of kids and young adults attending our March 25th Storm game and no doubt his message will help empower many to live life to the fullest potential. He is the perfect person to address our theme of HOPE & CARING at the game," says Jim Loria. Now at the age of 22, Wilson is studying for his MBA at the University of Sioux Falls and is the founder of  ?Our Growth Project?, an organization that is dedicated to ?discover greatness within youths through 'Edutainment' - Education, Art and Entertainment." He is an Inspirational Speaker, Writer and Poet.

A letter from the Sioux Falls School District


Greetings Storm Fans:

On behalf of the Sioux Falls School District, we would like to introduce you to a first-ever fundraising effort being coordinated by the Sioux Falls Storm Football Team. On March 25, 2017, the Storm organization will host a "Night of Hope and Caring." This fundraising event will help the Sioux Falls School District "Level the Playing Field for Elementary Schools that have fundraising needs." While some of our schools have very successful PTAs/PTOs with large fundraising capabilities, other schools have no PTA/PTO at all due to working parents with limited transportation and no financial means to support the little "extras" for their child's school.

As part of the Community Engagement section of the District's Strategic Plan, we are hoping that this Storm fundraiser can help support our schools with "extras" like field trips, playground equipment, school supplies, artists-in-residence, etc. Since the District does not employ a "development staff" to secure donations, we are grateful for the Storm's willingness to host a fundraiser for these needs.

As a friend of the Sioux Falls School District, I am inviting you to join this effort in any way your company or family sees fit. There are many opportunities from ticket purchases to pledge a donation for all Storm Touchdowns, provide silent auction items, sponsor a silent auction gift that bears an expense, sponsor a field banner for the Thunder Ball Toss promotion, sponsor Quarterback Sacks or even pledge a donation to receive a Game Announcement for your Company, etc. Any, and all, contributions from our business community is welcome.

Please contact Jim Loria with the Storm to discuss the opportunities or to have Jim meet with you in person. Jim can be reached through email at jim@siouxfallsstorm.com or by cell phone at 605.610.5902.

We sincerely appreciate the working relationship we have established with many of you and encourage you to support this very special and unique fundraiser on March 25, 2017, "A Night of Hope and Caring."


Thank you!
Missy Braak, Purchasing Supervisor
Sioux Falls School District
