AIDS Solidarity Gala 2014

hosted by UNAIDS and AIDS LIFE
presented by Chopard

In the run-up to the Life Ball opening ceremony UNAIDS and AIDS LIFE organize the AIDS Solidarity Gala in the Hofburg Imperial Palace for the fourth time. The exclusive gala banquet is traditionally held under the auspices of Federal President Heinz Fischer and enjoys political support at the highest level.

Renowned representatives of AIDS LIFE’s international partner organizations, Goodwill Ambassadors as well as opinion leaders in politics, economy and the arts unite each year to form a high-class international platform under the sign of the Red Ribbon. Thus, the AIDS Solidarity Gala enables an international exchange on progress made and remaining challenges in the fight against HIV and AIDS.

The presenting partner of the gala is the house Chopard. The world-famous manufacturer of watches and jewelry has always embraced the good cause in areas like culture, medicine and ecology and it also sponsors various charities for the benefit of people living with HIV or AIDS. “The AIDS Solidarity Gala not only generates financial means that are urgently needed for HIV/AIDS projects, but it also enables the dialogue between the most important national and international players. It is a great pleasure for us to devote our creativity and popularity to the good cause.”, says Mag. Thomas Koblmüller, CEO of Chopard Austria and Eastern Europe, about the cooperation.

The evening starts with a champagne reception followed by an exclusive gala dinner with live entertainment and high-quality musical performances. The auction of selected, unique pieces is the highlight of the evening. The AIDS Solidarity Gala’s profit becomes part of the net proceeds of the Life Ball 2014 and will go to help projects in the areas most affected by the AIDS epidemic
