St. Louis-Stuttgart (Germany) Sister Cities
St. Louis-Stuttgart (Germany) Sister Cities is St. Louis’ oldest Sister City. This not-for-profit organization was started in 1960. Now an international and a civic organization, St. Louis-Stuttgart Sister Cities, Inc. functions as a civic as well as an international organization, keeping a high profile in the St. Louis community by participating in local ceremonies. The St. Louis – Stuttgart Sister Cities Winter Ball raises money for scholarships for students wanting to study over seas. Please help us in meeting our goal this year and join us for this fun, festive event.
The funds raised through the Winter Ball Karneval support the organization’s cultural, educational and business/trade events and programming for members and the general public alike. These activities include student exchanges, as well as scholarships and educational grants which enable high school and college students, educators and business interns to study abroad.
The annual Winter Ball fundraiser helps foster business, education and cultural exchanges between the cities. Over the years, the SLSSC organization has been made up of German natives, business executives, former students, Americans who have visited Germany for the love of German culture.
