A more elaborate description would be "A non-profit, fraternal organization based on the premise of 'people helping people'"
Eagles clubs across the United States and Canada raise money every year for a variety of research charities including cancer, Alzheimers, heart deisease, spinal cord injury, and even one called the 'Jimmy Durante children's fund'.
We raise money all year long for the different charities, just to give it away, (and have one heck of a good time doing it!)....thru fundraisers such as Shorts just helped make happen, raffles, auctions, and other such activities.
Hope this gives you a better understanding about the Fraternal Order of Eagles
Congratulations, brother Shorts on a successful and worthy fundraiser!!
