American Airlines is There For Those Who Serve

Sky Ball VII with Lee Greenwood, Gary Sinise, Tony Orlando, Steve Amerson, Dale Dye and others

American Airlines and the Fort Worth Airpower Foundation are coming together once again to raise money for North Texas military families. Sky Ball VII is taking place on Saturday, Oct. 24 at American’s Alliance maintenance base, and you are invited to attend the gala.

Many families struggle to meet their financial obligations when their loved ones are called to active duty, in many cases for multiple tours overseas. Proceeds from Sky Ball provide financial assistance to these military families. Support comes in many forms, including financial aid for deployed families, departure and welcome-home receptions, support for welfare and relief projects of the units assigned in North Texas, and delivering care packages and other gifts to the soldiers wounded in battle who are recuperating at military hospitals.

The Sky Ball VII gala will feature a moving program, including entertainment headlined by Tony Orlando, a special guest appearance by fellow patriot Lee Greenwood and the voice of the Medal of Honor Foundation and “America’s Tenor,” Steve Amerson. Also appearing will be television and film celebrities, including Gary Sinise, star of the “CSI: NY” and “Forrest Gump;” and Dale Dye, star of “Saving Private Ryan” and “Band of Brothers,” among others. In addition, there will be a special appearance by inventor Dean Kamen, known for the Segway and iBOT mobility devices; and Chief Warrant Officer 4 Mike Durrant (ret), former POW and the pilot from the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment depicted in the movie, “Blackhawk Down.”

All proceeds from Sky Ball directly benefit the families of reservists and members of the National Guard stationed at the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth. Last year’s event alone raised more than $500,000 for families of deployed troops.
