About Operation Cares
In March of 2003, the Sioux Falls Skyforce created a charity to benefit family members of soldiers who were sent overseas for service. Operation Cares was launched with the help of over twenty Sioux Falls businesses. This effort has been very successful as it has raised over $120,000. All proceeds have gone to help military families with everyday needs such as car repairs, groceries, home repairs, etc.
The Skyforce’s next game is on Wednesday, Feb. 3 on the road against the Idaho Stampede. Tipoff is set for 8 p.m. CT at Qwest Arena. Season tickets and 12-ticket flex packs are on sale for the 2009-10 season. Discounts and benefits are also available for groups of 10 or more.
