According to 2021 North Texas Folds Of Honor Gala Honorary Co-Chairs Cintia Powers and Johnny Powers,
“The North Texas Folds of Honor Gala is more than just a fundraising event. It is a place where military families, veterans, scholarship recipients and members of the North Texas community unite to celebrate and invest in the Folds of Honor Mission. We are beyond proud of the impact Folds of Honor is making through its provision of educational scholarships to the families of America’s disabled and fallen service members. The sixth annual Folds of Honor Gala is a chance for us to further this impact even more, and we hope you can be a part of it.
“This year’s event will be held Saturday, November 13, on the field at AT&T Stadium. How cool! The night will consist of dinner, an auction and plenty of entertainment from our live musical performer, Emerald City. Not only is the event sure to be a fun time, but it will also be a privilege to gather together and witness all the lives being changed through our collective investment in Folds of Honor.
“There are close to 1.5 million dependents just in the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, and nine out of ten do not qualify for any federal financial assistance. We want to see a change in this frustrating statistic and believe the mission of Folds of Honor is an outstanding avenue to that change. Just in this past 2020 to 2021 school year, we have provided 104 scholarships to North Texas students, and we hope to see that number only go up with your help.
“We are thrilled to be a part of this year’s event and hope you will join us in championing this noble cause. We thank you in advance for standing with us in support of these remarkable families.
