28th Charity Ball an der Diplomatischen Akademie Wien

Charity Ball an der Diplomatischen Akademie

Wien 2023

Garden of Lights

The students of the Diplomatische Akademie Wien - Vienna School of International Studies are organising their 28th annual Charity Ball under the motto “Garden of Lights”. After two years of not being able to celebrate and give back to our community, we are delighted to invite you to an event that focuses on bringing lightness of being back. The annual Charity Ball, with its unwavering support throughout the years to multiple charitable organisations, hopes to resume this tradition by bringing back light in these difficult times. We are delighted to be reopening the doors of the Diplomatische Akademie Wien, as well as its garden, to our distinguished guests for a night of celebrations and generosity.

The proceeds from the 2023 Charity Ball will be donated to Neunerhaus.

The Charity

The proceeds from our Charity Ball will be donated to Neunerhaus.

Neunerhaus, founded in 1999, is an independent nonprofit association that offers homeless people and those at risk of poverty a chance for a self-determined and humane life with medical care, housing, and counselling. The aim is to support those affected in helping themselves improve their living situation in the long term. Furthermore, the organisation is committed to combating the exclusion of homeless people. Compassion and solidarity are at the heart of our event, hence why the 2023 Charity Ball will also be an occasion to contribute to the welfare of others.

More information about Neunerhaus can be found at neunerhaus.at.
