Every year, the Edina Rotary Foundation holds an Annual Fundraiser & Gala to raise funds for local and international project, programs, and grants. The theme of this year's Gala is "That's Entertainment!"  
 
Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 5, 2019, 6:30 PM and join us at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Bloomington for our biggest party of the year!
 
To purchase tickets for the event, buy a sponsorship package, or get more information on the event, please visit the Annual Fundraiser & Gala Website
 
The money raised at the Fundraiser allows our club to support many local and international projects, which continue year-after-year because of the commitment of our Rotary Club of Edina members and community members.  These projects include:
 
  • Camp Enterprise: Weekend camp on the free enterprise system
  • Cornerstone: Advocacy and protection services for victims of abuse
  • Feed My Starving Children: We purchase food and assemble food packets for international delivery
  • Leadership Ethics Seminar: Ethics workshop for Edina High School students
  • Interact Club: Rotary club for ages 12-18, sponsored by the two Edina Rotary clubs
  • Rotaract Club: Rotary club for young professionals ages 18-30, chartered by the two Edina Rotary clubs
  • Escuintla, Guatemala: Delivering clean water and sanitation to an entire town
  • Coban, Guatemala: Partners in an international collaboration that brought water filtration units to remote mountain villages outside Coban
