Royal Neighbors’ Cody Bender receives award

as Fraternalist of the Year


(Rock Island, IL) April 23, 2012  – Cody Bender, Bettendorf, IA, was named a 2012 Fraternalist of the Year by the Illinois Fraternal Alliance. The award was given during the Illinois Alliance’s Annual Meeting held in Skokie, IL.

Cody was recognized for his outstanding volunteer work throughout the community and Royal Neighbors. The president of his local Royal Neighbors chapter, he leads his fellow members as they serve homeless meals and participate in Make A Difference Day, JOIN HANDS DAY, fund-raisers, and networking events.

His volunteer spirit motivates others and serves as a role model for other teens. As a member of his school’s Student Council, he has organized many volunteer projects, including the Student Hunger Drive and the clean-up of the high school library garden. He has distributed gifts to the Iowa City, IA, hospital and reads to the children. He cares for the yard of an elderly neighbor, asking nothing in return. In addition, Cody has:

helped organize a Family Reading Night at a local grade school
held a Junior Golf Clinic for his high school
volunteered at a local youth home where he cleaned and painted and spent quality time with the children
participated in a mission trip to New York City where he worked with children with special needs and used his talents to make home repairs
In the midst of his volunteer efforts, Cody continuously remains on the Honor Roll; was selected for the All Academic Team for the Mississippi Athletic Conference for participating in multiple sports while maintaining a high grade point average; and received his high school’s Sportsmanship Award for three years in a row.

A check from the Illinois Fraternal Alliance will be donated in Cody’s name to Quad Cities Muscular Dystrophy Association, his charity of choice.

The Illinois Fraternal Alliance, a consortium of more than 50 non-profit fraternal life insurance societies in the State of Illinois, is affiliated with the American Fraternal Alliance and promotes fraternalism among its member societies.

Royal Neighbors of America, one of the nation’s largest women-led life insurance companies, exists for the benefit of its members. It offers insurance products to fulfill financial needs of growth, savings, and protection. Members receive valuable benefits and can participate in volunteer activities through the organization's local chapters to help make a difference in their communities. The organization's philanthropic efforts are dedicated to changing women's lives through its national programs, including the Nation of NeighborsSM Program, and through the Royal Neighbors Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public charity.

Headquartered in Rock Island, IL, with branch offices in Mesa, AZ, and Austin, TX, Royal Neighbors serves more than 215,000 members and is licensed to do business in 42 states and the District of Columbia.
