The Aerie held a special Building Fundraiser Dinner on Friday, November 17, 2017 to raise funds for major repairs our heating system suddenly required. ALL proceeds from this dinner will be used toward these costly repairs. The dinner was a Baked Potato Bar with yummy toppings including chicken in gravy, chili, green onions, broccoli, sour cream, bacon bits, shredded cheese and black beans. Brownies and cookies provided a sweet ending! The dinner was a hit with everyone and we thank all who attended to help support our cause. Special thanks to REAC for hosting the dinner and all who helped in any way planning, shopping, cooking, serving, and donating for this event. After dinner, everyone enjoyed karaoke with Whitey, especially many of the children who had come for the dinner! Enjoy the photo slideshow!
Our Diabetes Fundraiser, held on Nov. 4, 2017, was a big success because of support from our members and community! Thank you to everyone who bought tickets, bid on auction items, and made donations, like the Belleville Area Lions Club, which presented us with a check last night. Thank you for your generous donation, it's much appreciated.
We'd also like to thank Rocky Fortune for the great music! You guys never fail to please the crowd and we're happy you could share the evening with us.
Finally, a big THANK YOU to WP John Watkins & MP Toni Watkins for all their hard work in organizing the event, and thank you also to the dozens of members who volunteered hours of their time to help. We're blessed to have such selfless members. The Fraternal Order of Eagles Diabetes Research Center will benefit from everyone's generosity, and hopefully, one day there will be a cure for diabetes.
