    Sid Eppes, Chairman of the Board of the Airpower Foundation. He discusses the Foundation and the Upcoming Major Event of the Year  SkyBall, which takes place  on October 3,4,5,6th in Dallas, Texas. The American Airlines Sky Ball is the premier fundraising event for one of the oldest military support organizations in the US, the Airpower Foundation which was formed by the Fort Worth Airpower Council.

    The Airpower Foundation was established by the nation’s oldest military support organization. The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit with its roots dating back to 1958, when Air Force General Curtis LeMay and businessman/philanthropist Frank Kent created the Fort Worth Airpower Council dedicated to supporting the military community at Carswell Air Force Base.

    The mission of the Airpower Foundation has grown since it’s formation in 1999, and is now a nationwide program dedicated to supporting active duty, reserve and National Guard families.  Airpower also supports projects to assist wounded, ill or injured service members, children of our fallen military, veterans of previous wars and educational projects to make sure the next generation understands the honor and sacrifice of wearing the cloth of this country.

    The Airpower Foundation board of directors is a diverse group of professionals who volunteer their time and are dedicated to the proposition that freedom is not free.  It is their noble mission to assist deployed military families, wounded, ill or injured service members, and veterans of past wars.  They spend countless hours visiting military installations and families, assessing needs and grant requests.  They are instrumental in providing leadership to organize and execute numerous projects every year in support of military families.

    The American Airlines Sky Ball is the premier fundraising event for one of the oldest military support organizations in the US, the Airpower Foundation which was formed by the Fort Worth Airpower Council. Sky Ball has allowed the Airpower Foundation to contribute solely to funding projects that directly support the members and families of all branches of our military, veterans and wounded, ill, or injured service members and their families. Last year, Sky Ball raised more than $3.1 million to support our military through contingency funds at the Naval Air Station Fort Worth Joint Reserve Base and other military support organizations mentioned below.

    The Airpower Foundation was founded to be a nationwide 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to supporting active duty, reserve and National Guard families. The direct donations and sponsorships help support the children of our fallen military heroes, projects such as helping amputee and burn survivors transition to civilian life, providing advanced technology “smart” homes to severely wounded service members through our support of the Gary Sinise Foundation, kayak fishing expeditions for physically and emotionally challenged veterans, and so much more.
