The St. Louis-Stuttgart Sister Cities, Inc. Organization celebrated their 58th anniversary with their 31st Winter Ball Karneval on February 3rd at the Four Seasons in downtown St Louis. In the spirit of Mardi Gras, with a German flare, guests enjoyed a silent auction, cocktail hour, 3 course dinner, dancing, and fashion show featuring the St Louis Sister Cities. Board President, Susanne Evens, welcomed everyone to the event, and St. Louis radio personality, Katy Kruze, was the Winter Ball Mistress of Ceremonies.

As the major fundraiser for the organization, the annual Winter Ball helps foster business, education, and cultural exchanges between the cities. Started in 1960, SLSSC has become an international and civic organization participating in local ceremonies, conventions, and festivals.
