American Airlines Sky Ball XII, in support of the Airpower Foundation
American Airlines Sky Ball XII, in support of the Airpower Foundation, held its most successful Sky Ball event to date! The Foundation has set a new fundraising record of just over $1.9 million dollars which will provide much needed support to our nation's military and their families.
The organization hosted 3 days of events honoring our nation's military and also supporting local schools through our educational outreach programs. A career expo was held to provide jobs to our nation's veterans and transitioning military members. The Medal of Honor Foundation provided a workshop for local educators during which the foundation shared their character development program to teach children the importance of citizenship, patriotism, and honor for our great nation. Also, 3,000 children attended the Aviation Expo held in conjunction with our partner DFW International Airport at American Airlines Hangar #2. The 3-day program culminated with our Sky Ball Gala which honored all who served in Korea and also saluted the United States Navy.
The Airpower Foundation would like to sincerely thank all of our sponsors, guests, and over 1,500 volunteers who assisted to make the event possible. We salute you all, and look forward to American Airlines Sky Ball XIII to be held on October 24, 2015 when we will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Vietnam and salute the United States Air Force!

About Sky Ball
In 1999 the Fort Worth Airpower Council created the Fort Worth Airpower Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit foundation to raise money in support of our military and their families.
Sky Ball debuted ten years ago as the Foundation's premier fundraiser and American Airlines became the title sponsor of Sky Ball four years later.
Over the years, Sky Ball has allowed the FWAPF to contribute to many projects that directly support members of all branches of our military and their families. We are excited that the magnitude of Sky Ball has grown to a National level, allowing more broad-based support to military service members, veterans and their families wherever it is needed.
