The Airpower Foundation was proud to help sponsor military night at the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo on February 3, 2020! The evening included a swearing in ceremony of 15 new recruits with the oath delivered by Airpower Foundation board member, Medal of Honor Recipient, Don “Doc” Ballard. Following the oath, we were very thankful for a generous donation presented by Hillwoood and the Bell Alliance Air Show.
After the rodeo we were proud to also partner with American Hat company to present the post rodeo concert with Coffey Anderson!
We would like to thank Pam Wright, and the entire Rodeo staff for their support and having us join them for a very special and memorable military night at the rodeo!
The Heart Behind Sky Ball
Our premier fundraising event, Airpower Foundation Sky Ball, has raised over $24 million since its inception that has funded hundreds of military support programs thanks to our generous sponsors. Sky Ball fundraising gala is the kick-off event for this most Patriotic Weekend. Events over the weekend include educational outreach programs to local area schools, a pep rally and concert for military and families Friday evening, the Commander’s Classic at Globe Life Field where Army takes on AirForce, and Military Appreciation Day at the Cowboy’s game on Sunday. There simply is no other event in the country that matches the size and scope of Sky Ball.
