This year’s Edina Rotary Foundation Fundraiser & Gala is almost here! The annual fundraiser is set for Saturday, Oct. 1, at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Bloomington!  
 
We plan to put you in a “New York State of Mind” with creative food and entertainment. From the minute you enter the hotel and the New York City subway to the lively Central Park silent auction to the bright New York City lights for dinner and the dueling pianos of Deuces Wild in the ballroom we’re sure you’ll enjoy every New York minute! Registration ended Sept. 22. 
 
For more information about the event go here. If you have questions, contact Co-Chairs Sam Thompson or Leann Stessman.

Edina, Minnesota, Aug. 24 — The Edina Rotary Foundation is accepting applications from non-profit organizations in Edina and its contiguous communities for grants to be used for capital purchases. Applications are due Oct. 31.
 
Each year, the Rotary Club of Edina raises money at a fall fundraiser to support its projects and award grants. This year, more than $100,000 was raised for the Club’s service projects and local and international grants.
 
The Foundation’s Community Service – Local Funding Committee favors grant requests for projects that are tangible and self-perpetuating, will be completed in Edina or a bordering community, create partnerships with other organizations, provide benefits to many and can be leveraged over time.
