The Patriots Ball is Back

The Southwest Veterans Foundation announced its 2021 Patriots Ball is back! This annual fundraising gala has been a fixture in the Veteran community of Phoenix since 2015. Like so many other large events, COVID-19 forced its cancellation last October. It was originally rescheduled for March 21, but the lingering pandemic got in the way again.

The new date for 2021 is Saturday October 16 and it will return to the Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort for the third year. This year’s theme is “Desert Heroes: A Salute to Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans.”

Individual tickets are now on sale and sponsorship packages are available at

We hope you will join the Southwest Veterans Foundation in honoring our Veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan. By October 16 we will all be ready to recapture life as we knew it. What better way to do that by honoring and celebrating our Veterans and their service and sacrifices.
