The storied-yet-struggling Rhinos soccer team has set a Nov. 30 deadline to raise $1.3 million or the 22-year-old franchise will cease operations, Rochester’s team owners David and Wendy Dworkin said during a news conference on Wednesday.
“We are at a crossroads, and need to find a path that will bring sustained success for the Rhinos,” David Dworkin said in what the owners termed a “call to action,” as they seek help from community and business leaders to reach an ambitious goal before a league deadline on player contracts arrives on Nov. 30.
