President Michael StanzakWelcome to the Edina Rotary Foundation’s annual fundraiser and gala, “Champagne on Ice!”  
Thank you, Rotarians, spouses and guests for attending! Each year, we gather to raise funds that we give away both locally and internationally. Some of our local charities include Northside Boxing Club, Summit Academy, Frist Tee-Minnesota, Involve MN, Hope Academy, and more. In fact, thanks to people like you, we were able to give over $95,000 away last year to local charities in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area.  Internationally, we have funded water projects in villages in Guatemala, clean water in Peru and India, and water and sanitation projects in Uganda.  
Rotarians are truly people of action who make a difference in people’s lives. Please give generously so we can “Serve to Change People’s Lives.” Thank you again for attending and supporting our club! I hope you have a blast!
Joe Hayes
Rotary Club of Edina President
