Celebrating Life Since 1993
Life Ball, organized by the association LIFE+, celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2018. The event was founded by Gery Keszler and Torgom Petrosian in 1993 and takes place at Vienna’s City Hall every year since. Life Ball has become one of the world’s most important AIDS charity events. The seven-digit proceeds of the event benefit global aid projects, that are being donated every year in collaboration with international partner organizations.
An unsurpassed number of international celebrities from high fashion, entertainment and politics are supporting the event tirelessly every year to raise awareness for the cause. The City of Vienna also contributes significantly to the success of Life Ball. Providing Vienna’s City Hall as 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!
KNOW YOUR STATUS
A year-round awareness campaign ensures that the dangers of HIV and AIDS remain in the public eye even after the ball. National and international stars had their picture taken with the LIFE+ patch and encouraged others to get tested for HIV as well. The goal of our KNOW YOUR STATUS campaign is to prevent HIV infections or detect them early on. The campaign will be extended in 2019.erfahren Sie mehr
