The 63rd Quadrille Ball – Old School Elegance Attracts Next Generation

The 63rd Annual Quadrille Ball, a white tie charity event took place at 583 Park Avenue in New York City. This unique and exquisite gala showcased once more an elegant night where guests enjoyed a cocktail reception and a three-course dinner followed by dancing and the premier highlight of the evening – the Quadrille performance.

The annual ball is a fundraiser for scholarships awarded to highly qualified students enrolled at U.S. or German universities. The Quadrille was founded decades ago to enhance and strengthen transatlantic relationships through education and exchange. Through its non-profit parent organization, the Germanistic Society of America, the Quadrille supports undergraduate, Master and PhD students.

The stipends awarded by the 501(c)3 non-profit organization offer students the opportunity to study and conduct research across the Atlantic. Scholarship recipients are chosen in cooperation with highly regarded organizations: the Fulbright program, the Institute of International Education (IIE), and Columbia University. More than 700 students have benefited from the Germanistic Society of America’s support over the years.

The Quadrille is organized by volunteers to ensure that the tax-deductible contributions from sponsors, advertisers, donors, and ball guests benefit the stipend fund. This evening is only possible with the hundreds of  hours of their time, their skills, and boundless positive energy.

This year’s Ball welcomed Guest of  Honor Dr. Bernd Scheifele and his wife  Dr. Kornelie Schütz-Scheifele in addition to friends including The Consul General of  Germany in New York, Mr. David Gill and his wife Ms. Sheila Shrivastava.

The Quadrille Stipend Fund could not succeed without the continued and generous support of corporate sponsors, individual patrons, and other private donors. Financial and non-monetary donations help the Germanistic Society of America award its scholarships to outstanding students from the United States and Germany.  The Quadrille Ball would like to thank Sponsors including, The Mejean Family Foundation (Ful Scholarship Sponsor),  Microsoft,  The Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Foundation, The Max Kade Foundation and Dr. and Mrs. Andrew Shiva (Platinum Sponsors).
