On June 16, 2012 Sockers FC Chicago hosted the 25th Anniversary Gala.  Over 250 attendees enjoyed the evening’s celebration which included a Hall of Fame Induction, Scholarship Awards, dinner and drinks, silent and live auctions, dancing and some very enjoyable opportunities to take green screen photos with friends.

Both Michael Bradley and Jonathan Spector attended the event and represented the inaugural Hall of Fame inductees.

Four scholarships were awarded as follows:

1) Coaching Staff Scholarship awarded to Ismael Albarran
2) Jonathan Spector Scholarship awarded to Kevin Sieb
3) Sockers Youth Foundation Scholarship awarded to Alonzo Carrillo
4) Alumni Scholarship awarded to Jake Fuderer
An additional partial scholarship was collected from donations made by gala guests and will be awarded in the future.


Over 200 items were auctioned-off during the Silent and Live Auction event, most donated by membership families. SmartPhone technology was used for the auction and allowed members to participate in bidding, regardless of their attendance.
