The Heart Behind Sky Ball

Our premier fundraising event, Airpower Foundation Sky Ball, has raised over $20 million since its inception thanks to our generous sponsors. Sky Ball has grown from a single evening fundraising dinner, to a three-day weekend of events honoring our nation’s military and their families. Events over the weekend include educational outreach programs to local area schools, a concert for military and families Friday evening, culminating with the Black-Tie Sky Ball Gala hosted inside the brand new Globe Life Field with the Texas Rangers!  There simply is no other event in the country that matches the size and scope of Sky Ball.
