Vienna Lifeball We are sad to say this event no longer takes place

In 1992, Gery Keszler and DR. Torgom Petrosian founded Life Ball. Ever since its debut, the annual event has been committed to removing taboos and fighting against HIV and AIDS, as well as addressing socio-political issues surrounding the virus.

The opening ceremony on Rathausplatz sets the time-honored traditions of classical Viennese ball culture in a fresh context for a more contemporary audience.

Afterwards, the Life Ball ticket holders head inside City Hall for a wild night of partying all in the name of a good cause. In addition to hundreds of helpers working away behind the scenes each year, the event attracts the voluntary support of world-famous personalities, artists and music acts.

The profits from the Life Ball are put to work supporting respected international partner organizations such as the Clinton Health Access Initiative, the Elton John AIDS Foundation, amfAR – The Foundation for AIDS Research and UNAIDS, driving forward various projects in the parts of the world hardest hit by the AIDS epidemic.
