Fundraising efforts for the Johnnie B. Byrd, Sr. Alzheimer's Center & Research Institute's are taking off. The Fraternal Order of Eagles chose the Institute as their charity of the year and raised $120,000 so far for the non-profit organization.

"The money raised for the Institute is the most money ever raised by the Florida Fraternal Order of Eagles and Auxiliary and we are proud to partner with this outstanding organization," says Ernie Repp, Immediate Past President of Florida Fraternal Order of Eagles.

"Building this partnership has now assured us more money for research. This is critical because the number of Alzheimer's cases are soaring. This funding will help our needs as we develop our world class Institute and continue our mission to find a cure for Alzheimer's," says Huntington Potter, PhD, lead scientist and CEO of the Byrd Alzheimer's Research Institute.

The Johnnie B. Byrd Sr., Alzheimer's Center & Research Institute supports cutting edge research on Alzheimer's disease in our own affiliated laboratories and clinics throughout the world. The Byrd Alzheimer's Institute is a non-profit organization that believes through collaboration, together we can win the battle against Alzheimer's disease. Contributions are tax deductible.

The Fraternal Order of Eagles is an international nonprofit organization whose mission unites fraternally in the spirit of liberty, truth, justice, and equality, to make human life more desirable by lessening its ills, and by promoting peace, prosperity, gladness and hope.

The Eagles raise money each year for a non-profit charity selected by the President and Auxiliary. They have members in over 1,700 local Aeries and Auxiliaries in the United States of America and Canada that help make their communities a better place to live in. It is estimated that all donations from their organization to communities, charities, and social programs will exceed $10,000,000 a year and as a result will take one step closer to finding a cure for diseases that effect all of our lives.
