For his countless years of service to The Fraternal Order of Eagles, the Eagles’ Children’s Fund was named in honor of legendary entertainer Jimmy Durante in 1966. The man who did it all “For Da Kids” was a staple at F.O.E. gatherings and performed at 14 consecutive International Conventions free of charge until his death in 1980. His kind, gentle and hilarious demeanor inspired members to give back and make a difference in the lives of children everywhere.
