PrideWorld Promotes Gay & Lesbian Life Ball in Austria, 2004

PrideWorld, one of America’s premier gay and lesbian tour operators, has the distinction of being selected as America’s exclusive tour operator to promote this year’s Vienna Life Ball — one of the largest and most colorful AIDS charity events in Europe as well as Austria’s most important fashion event. The 12th Life Ball will take place on May 15, 2004. The goal is to raise funds in support of different organizations involved in helping and working with those who are HIV+ or living with AIDS. The proceeds go to a number of international AIDS programs, including those in Austria and South Africa. The festivities start with an official opening and special fashion show in and in front of the Vienna City Hall – with a stage and catwalk in the shape of a huge Red Ribbon — followed by the opulent Life Ball inside the Vienna City Hall, with a variety of music and performances by international luminaries. Life Ball is considered one of the world’s “hottest” events, attracting celebrities from around the world, with tickets being almost as hard to obtain as those to the Academy Awards.

PrideWorld’s designation as the exclusive North American promoter of Life Ball underscores the company’s worldwide reputation for excellence, reliability and integrity. Richard Krieger, managing director of the company, expressed his excitement, saying, “We are thrilled to have been chosen to play such a prominent part in such a prestigious and important international event and are delighted to be able to offer it to our clients. Indeed, demand is likely to far exceed the limited number of tickets available.”

Celebrating gay and lesbian pride, packages include four night’s accommodation, airfare from the USA, and Life Ball tickets, start at $1490.00 per person, depending on hotel. Package partners include Austrian Airlines, SAS Hotels, Intercontinental Hotels and Hilton Hotels.
