The grandest social event of the year

Julie Annette, a local Eagan artist, posed among her oil paintings featured at the 23rd annual Eagan Rotary Art Gala fundraiser. Over 325 guests gathered at the Eagan Community Center for the black-tie optional event with live music, hors d'oeuvres, silent auction bidding on over 200 items, dinner, musical entertainment performed by the "Grace Notes Trio" and lastly a live auction of seven large items. This charitable event funds the Eagan Rotary Club's local, national and international projects and grants!
