The Airpower Foundation was proud present a brand new iBOT Mobility Device to Ty DeJane who was paralyzed due to injuries received during his service in Iraq at the 2020 Armed Forces Bowl Game on January 4, 2020! This was made possible thanks to our amazing sponsors and partners, Infinite Hero, Mobius Mobility, ANT LIFTS, D&M Leasing, and United Access. Thanks to D&M Leasing, Ty also received a brand new Toyota truck with an Ant Lifts system to assist with loading the chair in the truck!
The Airpower Foundation was also honored to sponsor a special lunch for all the Purple Heart recipients in attendance at the Warrior End Zone Club. A special thank you to Tal Milan and the Fort Worth Airpower Council for all they did to support and assist these American heroes during the game.
We would thank to sincerely thank Armed Forces Bowl Game Executive Director, Brant Ringler, and Mr. Jim Darwin for allowing us to be a part of the game, for for all they do to make this event so special. Congratulations on another successful, and unforgettable Armed Forces Bowl!
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.
