World Affairs Council of Greater St. Louis’ Chinese New Year

Three hundred people gathered together for World Affairs Council’s 22nd Annual Chinese New Year Celebration at the Ritz-Carlton, St. Louis, Friday, Feb. 8, 2013. The McDonnell International Scholars  Academy scholars were in attendance as a Silver Table Sponsor for the event.

The Scholars represented seven different partner institutions in seven different countries: Chile, China, Hungary, the Netherlands, India, Indonesia and the USA.

For over 20 years, the World Affairs Council (WAC) of St. Louis, an internationally educating nonprofit, has sponsored an annual fundraiser that celebrates the arrival of the Chinese New Year. The event proceeds underwrite the council’s free international and cultural programs for students and people of all ages.
