Magnolia Ball

The magnolia is the symbol of the Magnolia Ball, a charity event arranged every year by the Deutsch-Amerikanischer Frauenclub München – German-American Women’s Club e.V. The magnolia originated in China; where from ancient times the emperor had exclusive rights to it and presented it as a special form of recognition to outstanding individuals. It is in this sense that our ball is a sign of special recognition to its guests of honor, friends and supporters as well as its members.

It all started in 1951, when Chester Wright, the president of the German-American Men's Club of Munich at that time, had fresh magnolias flown in from Georgia, USA. That settled the name of the event.

Soon after, the Women’s Club assumed the responsibility for arrangement, organization and carrying out of the glamorous black and white ball. Since then, it has been held every year without interruption. This festive occasion has become one of the oldest and most renowned “flower balls” of the Munich Mardi Gras season. Its main purpose is to raise funds for charitable activities of the club: the German-American Student Exchange Program and support of various Munich charitable organizations.
