Former Participants – Irish twins Jedward (Ireland 2011, 2012) will be in Vienna during Eurovision 2015… to help raise money for one at the largest AIDS charity events; The Life Ball. They will be modelling for top fashion designer, Jean Paul Gaultier at the event on 16th May.
The Life Ball, which takes place annually inside Vienna City Hall, is one of the biggest AIDS charity events in the world. The aim is to help affected people in an unconventional way and to fight against the taboo status of HIV/AIDS in our society. Life Ball is an exuberant festivity that celebrates life and makes a loud statement in the fight against HIV and AIDS – resounding across the boundaries of Vienna and Austria. This year’s motto, tying in with Eurovision, is building bridges for peace.
Also expected to be in attendance will be Charlize Theron, Mary J Blige, Dita von Teese, Kelly Osbourne, Carmen Carrera and Paula Abdul. Find out more at www.lifeball.org
