Cedar Creek Veterans Foundation
What is the CCVF?
The Cedar Creek Veterans Foundation was established in 2009 by some residents of the Pinnacle Club in Mabank, Texas, on Cedar Creek Lake to raise money for well-established non-profits providing support services to military and veterans, and their families, particularly those from East Texas. THOSE SERVICE MEMBERS HAD BEEN injured in combat operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. The signature event of the Foundation is the Thunder Over Cedar Creek Lake Air Show over THE 4th of July weekend; IN THE PAST, THIS EVENT HAS BEEN viewed by over 50,000 people. The air show was started several years ago by Board member and MiG-17 owner and pilot Randy Ball and is one of very few shows performed over water. In addition to the MiG–17, prior shows have featured an Air Force F-16 demonstration team, C–17, the Tora Tora Tora group, C–130, an L-29, a B-52 bomber, three of only about a dozen B-25’s still flying and many others. WE HAVE BEEN FORTUNATE TO HAVE SEVERAL AEROBATIC AIRCRAFT PERFORM AS WELL AS MULTI-PLANE FORMATION FLIGHTS TO THRILL AND SURPRISE THE AUDIENCE, LAND-SIDE AND WATER-SIDE!
The Director of the Air Show is Randy Ball, a 6th generation Texan and the grand son of a World War II B-17 bomber pilot. Randy has over 30 years as a pilot and still works as an Airline Captain. With over 24 years of experience in air shows, he has flown in over 1,000 performances. His 1,000 hours of time piloting a Russian Jet Fighter has been recognized as he has a Level I Jet Aerobatic Day and Night rating; the ONLY JET FIGHTER PILOT IN NORTH AMERICA. As Director, Randy works to get the performers sequenced in the Air Show to provide the thrills and excitement that has been the corner stones of this event since the beginning
During THIS YEAR'S AIR SHOW, the Cedar Creek Veterans Foundation will once again have three events to support the three Armed Forces Veterans charity organizations that the proceeds are distributed to; the The Fisher House, Hope for the Warriors, and the Navy and Marine Corp Relief Society. In addition, the Foundation will also provide financial support to the Payne Spring Fire Rescue for their stand-by emergency services during the Air Show. Since the initial Air Show, the Foundation has provided almost $100,000 to these organizations to provide for Veterans and their familes.
