Project

The annual Dancing with the Chesapeake Sister Cities Stars event was created to gain awareness for the need of developing international relations among cities that exist within different countries. A portion of the proceeds raised from this event was to benefit medical mission development through Montero Medical Missions.

Coordinating Organization

The organization that coordinates this annual event is the Sister Cities Committee of Chesapeake, Inc. that is member of Sister Cities International. Sister Cities International was created at President Eisenhower’s 1956 White House conference on citizen diplomacy. Eisenhower envisioned an organization that could be the hub of peace and prosperity by creating bonds between people from different cities around the world. By forming these relationships, President Eisenhower reasoned that people of different cultures could celebrate and appreciate their differences and build partnerships that would lessen the chance of new conflicts.

Sister Cities International creates relationships based on cultural, educational, information and trade exchanges, creating lifelong friendships that provide prosperity and peace through person-to-person “citizen diplomacy.” Since its inception, Sister Cities International has played a key role in renewing and strengthening important global relationships. Sister Cities International improved diplomatic relationships at watershed moments over the past 50 years, including partnerships with China in the 1970s.
