Our Annual Winter Ball Karneval is our major fundraiser of the year. The Winter Ball Karneval brings together over 400 members & friends from near and far,  to raise money in support of the following programs:We support three area high schools with their active high school student exchanges with Stuttgart:  John Burroughs, Parkway South and Lindbergh. We support three area universities with active exchanges with the University of Stuttgart: UMSL, St. Louis University and we support the German language program at Webster University. We also support the German Culture Center at UMSL; the German School Association and our board members and volunteers host visitors from Stuttgart and show them our beautiful St. Louis.  We are St. Louis’ oldest Sister City and under the umbrella of the St. Louis World Trade Center and Sister Cities International.
