On June 6, 2017, The Airpower Foundation was proud to once again partner with Starpower who graciously donated their North Dallas showroom for a another great evening to announce the plans for Sky Ball XV!  Thanks to Texas Land & Cattle / Lonestar Steakhouse, we had amazing food prepared by their Chief Culinary Officer, John Imbriolo!  We also had a great raffle to include autographed books by author James “Maggie” Megellas, the most decorated officer in the history of the 82nd Airborne Division, and DVD’s of his documentary film, Maggie’s War.  We were honored to have Maggie join us at the event, along with Medal of Honor recipient, Gary Littrell.  We then raffled off a 32″ LED TV donated by Starpower.  Catherine Metcalfe, with the Medal of Honor Foundation’s Character Development Program, also provided an overview of their program.  The Medal of Honor CDP is a resource designed by teachers to provide students with opportunities to explore the important concepts of courage, commitment, sacrifice, patriotism, integrity and citizenship and how these values can be exemplified in daily life.  Education Chairperson, Tricia Palmersheim, then provided an overview how this educational program will be a major initiative for Sky Ball XV.  The evening also included entertainment by the National Anthem Girl, Janine Stange, and country recording artist Austin Allsup, who was also a contestant on NBCs the Voice.  Finally, we were honored to receive a check for $30,000 from a new Sky Ball sponsor for 2017, EPS credit card processing services.  Proudly presenting the check was CEO and Founder, John Dorsey, and National Sales Director, Larry Stuart.  A big thank you to Starpower and Texas Land & Cattle for all their support in making this special evening possible!!  Also a big thank you to A Veterans Valet who took such great care of everyones vehicles during the event, and PSAV for providing a great sound system for our entertainers and speakers.  Thank you to everyone who joined us and for all your support of the Airpower Foundation, Sky Ball, and all who serve!  Make sure to visit https://www.skyballinfo.com for more information about Sky Ball XV, and how you can become a sponsor of this spectacular event!!  Please enjoy the amazing rendition of “God Bless America” and photos from the event below:
