An outstanding season marking the Economic Club’s 25th anniversary ended on a very high note in June with a gala celebration featuring Warren Buffett as a special guest. Mr. Buffett engaged in a spirited conversation with President David M. Rubenstein that covered a wide range of topics, including tales of how he began his investment career, his philosophy toward investment and business management, the state of the United States and global economies, and his opinion regarding resolution of the U.S. deficit crisis.
More than 1,600 people joined in this tribute to the Club’s history that was highlighted by a video message of congratulations from President Obama. Another special feature of the evening was the presentation of the Economic Club’s 25th Anniversary Community Grants of $50,000 each to 10 metropolitan nonprofit organizations providing services to underserved youth in the area. Other highlights included a special gift presentation to Mary Brady, our Executive Director, in honor of her 25 years of service to the Club and a video with an overview of the Economic Club’s history.
