Founded by Brian and his wife Gretta in 2011, Birdies4Brains' primary mission is to help people who are recovering from traumatic brain injuries. Birdies4Brains is a golf charity event held every year on the summer solstice. Unlike any other typical golf charity event, a group of golfers sign up to take on 100 holes of golf in 1 day. Between participants who raise funds and donors, B4B has raised just under $500,000 for those impacted by a brain injury and their family. Often times these donations go to help cover medical and travel costs that families often incur when an injury occurs.

The impacts of a brain injury hits all too close to home for Brian Eder. In 2009 he nearly lost his sister, Christine, who suffered from a brain aneurism her senior year at St. Ben's. Ever since, Brian has made it a mission to work alongside a few buddies and his team here at Eder & Associates to continue to impact this specific group of individuals in a big way.

Every year during NCAA March Madness, team members volunteer at the hospital by throwing a huge viewing party for all patients, families and staff to attend and watch the games. Pictured below are Kelly, Jason, Chantelle and Anne from the 2018 and 2019 events.
