On the weekend of August 21 and 22, 2020, the largest and most impactful civilian military support event in the nation joins the Major Leagues. 

The Airpower Foundation will bring its annual Sky Ball benefit to the new Globe Life Field in 2020. The nonprofit is dedicated to supporting active duty, reserve and National Guard families along with veterans' programs. 

“We are ecstatic to welcome the Airpower Foundation and their world-famous Sky Ball event to Globe Life Field. The work that the Airpower Foundation does for our military is truly extraordinary and we are honored to be their host for 2020 and beyond.” said Sean Decker, with the Texas Rangers Baseball Club.

Since its inception as the premier fundraising event for the Airpower Foundation, an all-volunteer organization, Sky Ball has raised over $20 million. Thanks to generous sponsors, Sky Ball has grown from a single evening fundraising dinner to a weekend of tributes honoring our nation’s military and their families. Activities over the weekend’s festivities include educational outreach programs to local schools, a Friday evening concert dedicated to our military and families, a portrait presentation-luncheon honoring a fallen military hero, all of which culminates with the Sky Ball Saturday evening Gala.

"The Airpower Foundation has displayed an unwavering commitment when it comes to supporting our military veterans across this great country," said Arlington Mayor Jeff Williams. "The foundation's legacy of recognizing their sacrifices, and taking care of military families, is an inspiration to all Americans. We're incredibly honored to welcome the prestigious Sky Ball to Arlington, the home of the future National Medal of Honor Museum, and we're grateful for the instrumental leadership of Airpower Chairman Sid Eppes for helping us showcase why The American Dream City has a patriotic spirit that's second to none."

“We couldn’t be more excited with this opportunity to host our 18th annual event at the brand-new ballpark with the Texas Rangers,” said Sid Eppes, Chairman of the Airpower Foundation. “This extraordinary new venue will allow us to raise more funds than ever before, making an even larger impact for the lives of our nation’s military, veterans, wounded, their families, and the families of our fallen military heroes.” 

Over the past twenty years, Airpower Foundation has matured to fund more than 72 programs across the country annually, ensuring the funds raised directly impact and support those who need it the most.
