Richard M. Schulze, founder of Best Buy, will be the program speaker at the Thursday, Aug. 25, Rotary Club of Edina meeting. Best Buy is celebrating its 50th anniversary this week. A St. Paul native, Schulze serves as Chairman of the Board and Founder Emeritus of Best Buy, along with roles as founder, chairman and/or president at three other companies. Much of his focus is on his philanthropy work, and he established the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation in 2004 to extend the reach of his charitable work. He is also the chairman of the board for the foundation.
 
Hannelore Brucker will give her classification talk at the meeting.
 
 
Spend a night out on the town and at an evening of giving! This year’s Edina Rotary Foundation Fundraiser & Gala is set for 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!
