Fighting AIDS &
Celebrating Life Since 1993

Life Ball, organized by LIFE+, celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. It was founded by Gery Keszler and Torgom Petrosian in 1993 and takes place at Vienna’s City Hall every year. Life Ball has become one of the world’s most important AIDS charity events. The seven-digit proceeds of this benefit event go to global aid projects, in collaboration with international partner organizations.

An unsurpassed number of international celebrities from the worlds of fashion, entertainment, and politics works tirelessly every year to raise awareness for this issue. The City of Vienna also contributes significantly to the success of Life Ball. Providing Vienna’s City Hall as the venue for this event clearly shows this city’s cosmopolitanism, tolerance, and social responsibility.

The message is loud and clear: Together we can end AIDS!

The fight against HIV:
a year-round mission

A year-round awareness campaign ensures that the dangers of HIV and AIDS remain in the public eye after the ball. National and international stars had their picture taken with the LIFE+ patch and encouraged others to get tested for HIV. The goal is to prevent HIV infections or detect them early on.

Life Ball Next Generation

Information knows no age limits. Prevention and tolerance are not just for adults. This is why LIFE+ expanded its activities towards younger audiences and started Life Ball Next Generation. Since 2017, it is a thank you for all young adults between the ages 16 to 18 who share HIV/AIDS-related information with their peers. Life Ball Next Generation is just as grandiose as its big brother at Vienna’s City Hall.

LIFE+ Celebration Concert

Since its inception, Life Ball regarded itself as a celebration for everybody, and never let itself be put into a specific niche. The Life+ Celebration Concert, the sister event of Life Ball, affirms this position. As the start event of Life Ball Week, the international world of opera and theater comes together on one of the most renowned stages of the world – Vienna’s Burgtheater - to spread the message that AIDS can only be defeated when we work together.
