New York, Jan 28, 2014 - On Saturday, January 25th, 2013, more than 250 guests gathered at the Pierre Hotel in New York City for the 54th Annual Quadrille Ball, one of the few white tie events and an annual staple of the New York Ball Season. This year’s honoree, Mr. Bernard Meyer, Managing Partner of Meyer Werft, has earned an international reputation for the construction of large, modern cruise ships including Celebrity Cruises and Disney Cruise Lines. His newest and largest ship, the Norwegian Getaway, just came to port in time to host more than 4000 visitors for the Super Bowl.


Ball guests included the German Consul General, New York, Busso von Alvensleben  and his wife Maria-Theresia, the Rector of Technical University of Dortmund and head of the Board of Trustees of Krupp Foundation Prof. Dr. Ursula Gather, UN High Representative for Disarmament Affairs Mrs. Angela Kane, the CEO of the German American Chamber of Commerce Dietmar RiegCount Victor Dijon von Monteton with his wife Katharina, the President of the Germanistic Society of America, Prof. Dr. Barbara Elling, and Quadrille Ball Committee Chair Irmintraud Jost. They allenjoyed silent auction, cocktails, dinner and dancing until 4AM. The highlight of the evening was the traditional performance of the Quadrille, a 17th century court dance, performed by twenty pairs of young professionals. The Alex Donner Orchestra provided the musical backdrop for the evening. Mr. von Alvensleben also celebrated his Birthday that night along with Quadrille Benefactor David W. Detjen.

The evening was made possible thanks to the generosity of sponsors including VitraDr. Timothy Dezastro, Dr. and Mrs. Andrew Shiva, the Max Kade Foundation,  the Paramount Group, and Henry Schein Cares. Mont Blanc, Tiffany & Co., Mercedes-Benz, Chopard, and other donors generously provided items for the Silent Auction.

The Quadrille Ball, hosted by the Germanistic Society of America, promotes friendship and understanding among young people from around the world through international cultural exchange. Proceeds from the Quadrille Ball provide the Germanistic Society of America with funds for international scholarships to highly qualified American and German students. To date, more than 500 scholarships have been awarded totaling over $3 million. The Germanistic Society of America awards continue to support fields of study that transcend borders and cultures in our interconnected global society.   2014 scholarships will fund research in the fields of Autism, Worldwide Healthcare Entrepreneurship, Peaceful and Sustainable Resolution of Violent Conflict, Design and Technology, and the Alleviation of Global Poverty.
