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.
