Three Dallas-area law enforcement and military service members will be attending the “Salute to Heroes Concert” featuring Gary Sinese and the Lt. Dan Band on Friday, Oct. 21, unaware that they will be called up on stage and surprised with keys to practically brand-new vehicles.
The surprise vehicle presentations and the Salute to Heroes concert will be broadcast live starting at 7:30 p.m. CDT by Microsoft to all U.S. military bases across the country. The public is also welcome to view the live broadcast at www.skyballconcert.com.
The vehicles are being presented by Caliber Collision, a sponsor of the 14th Annual American Airlines Sky Ball in support of the Airpower Foundation, founded by the nation’s oldest military support organization, The Fort Worth Airpower Council. Sky Ball is the largest and most impactful military support event in the nation.
Vehicles for the presentation were restored by technicians at several Caliber Collision North Texas locations as part of the National Auto Body Council’s Recycled Rides program, which provides reliable transportation for individuals in need.
The three recipients, selected by the Airpower Foundation, include a North Texas law enforcement officer and Army veteran, U.S. Navy sailor and U.S. Army specialist.
The three-day Sky Ball event, from Thursday, Oct. 20th to Saturday, Oct. 22nd, features live music from top performers such as Tim McGraw, Terry Fator and more.
