2013 Sister Cities Reception
The 2013 Sister Cities Reception will be held on May 9, 2013 (Thurs.) at City Hall in the Bertha Knight Landes from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. For more information, visit www.seattlesistercities.org.

The purpose of the reception is to thank Seattle's 21 sister city associations and their many enthusiastic volunteers for their dedication and hard work, and to honor the associations for their outstanding achievements. The reception is also the primary fundraising activity for the sister city program, with funds being used to provide matching grants for exchange programs and other projects initiated and organized by the individual associations.

Each year, the reception highlights four of Seattle's 21 sister cities by featuring food and entertainment from those cities. The cities to be highlighted at this year's reception are Chongqing (China), Limbe (Cameroon), Perugia (Italy), and Tashkent (Uzbekistan).

Seattle's sister city program is one of the largest and most successful in the United States. Several of our 21 sister city associations have won national awards and many have served as models for sister city programs in other cities.
