About this Event

Tickets available from 1.12.2019

We cordially invite you to the 27th annual Charity Ball, which will be held on the 8th of February 2020 at the oldest school of diplomacy in the world - Diplomatische Akademie Wien.

The students of the Diplomatische Akademie Wien have the honour of organising this year’s Charity Ball – a highlight of the Academy’s calendar. As the most distinguished event at the Academy, we expect around 600 guests, including ambassadors, business representatives, friends of the academy and, of course, our very promising student body.

This year’s ball will be organised under the motto “Der Glorreiche Augenblick.” ‘The Glorious Moment’ is the title of Beethoven’s (Op. 136) cantata performed for the opening of the Congress of Vienna in 1814. As 2020 is the occasion of Beethoven’s 250th birthday and will be celebrated around Vienna, we want to join in this celebration of the important cultural as well as diplomatic history of Vienna.

The proceeds from our Charity Ball will be donated to Alzheimer Austria. Alzheimer Austria is a Vienna-based volunteer organization/self-help group. The founders have worked as volunteers since 1990 aiming to support people with dementia and their families with a wide range of offers. More information can be found on their website: https://www.alzheimer-selbsthilfe.at/. The efforts of this ball will more specifically go to funding their new project: Empowerment of People with Dementia - 'Turn the Corner'.
