SkyLite Fireworks is teaming up with World Class Fireworks and the Folds of Honor Foundation this July 4th season to ensure no family gets left behind in the fight to preserve American freedom. To date, more than 700,000 soldiers have been killed or disabled in military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. This joint venture will raise funds and help provide scholarships to family members of soldiers wounded or killed in service to their country. The 2015 goal is to raise more than $250,000 nationwide, which will impact more than 50 families.
SkyLite Fireworks will be selling the “Folds of Honor” 500 gram cake at it South Central Kentucky locations in 2015. For each “Folds of Honor” firework sold, $10 will be donated to the Folds of Honor Foundation.
“This is our second year to participate in the Folds of Honor campaign,” states Amy Burge, owner of SkyLite Fireworks. “The Folds of Honor firework paints the sky red, white and blue, and it’s an ideal way to show your support for the military this July 4th season.”
Folds of Honor provides educational scholarships to military men, women and family members. Of the one million plus dependents affected by the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, roughly 85 percent of those service members do not qualify for federal scholarship assistance. Since 2007, Folds of Honor has awarded more than 7,500 scholarships. To learn more about contributions or applying for scholarships visit www.foldsofhonor.org.
