A highlight of the Patriot Golf Tournament in Owasso in May was the landing of the DreamShip Balloon to honor military families.

Presented by the Rite Aid Foundation, KidCents and Folds of Honor, the DreamShip is a fully operational hot air balloon, designed by the children of America’s military heroes.

Since its inaugural flight from Liberty Landing in 2016, The DreamShip has been traveling the country to raise awareness and support for Folds of Honor, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing educational scholarships to children of fallen or disabled service members.

With a unique design, the DreamShip showcases artwork created by Folds of Honor Scholarship recipients symbolizing their hopes and dreams for the future.
The balloon stands over eight stories high and features 130 unique drawings of dreams. Artwork includes a cupcake shop owner, sports stars, veterinarians, doctors, pilots and weapons specialist, and a pharmacist.

Since 2015, Folds of Honor and The Rite Aid Foundation’s KidCents program have awarded more than $5 million to fund more than 1,100 scholarships for the children of fallen or disabled military veterans.

The DreamShip visited The Patriot Cup Invitational, a The Patriot weekend golf tournament and national gala celebrates the nation’s heroes. The patriotic event is attended by players from the PGA Tour, TGA Tour Champions and LGPA Tour, military golfers from across the country and a host of celebrities to create a memorable experience for the families of fallen and disable service members.
