International platform

For the Fight Against HIV/AIDS

Prior to the Life Ball Opening Ceremony, the LIFE+ SOLIDARITY GALA – a prestigious gala banquet – took place at Vienna City Hall. The gala’s exclusive guests experienced a champagne reception, a live auction of selected and unique items as well as special music performances. The LIFE+ Solidarity Gala is an important centerpiece of LIFE BALL to raise awareness for the progress made as well as provide an opportunity for politicians, heads of corporations and NGOs, celebrities, artists, and other VIPS to meet and discuss their work in the fight against AIDS on a more personal, in-depth level.

Exclusive Gala Dinner

The LIFE + Solidarity Gala provided an opportunity for international exchange and to address progress made and discuss the remaining challenges in the fight against HIV and AIDS. The evening started with a champagne reception followed by an exclusive gala dinner with live acts and sophisticated musical performances. The highlight of the evening was an auction of selected unique items. The proceeds of the LIFE + Solidarity Gala go into the Life Ball net proceeds and are awarded to aid projects in the areas most affected by the AIDS epidemic.

The Gala was co-hosted by The Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria
