South Beach performer/DJ Elaine Lancaster has been chosen to perform and co-emcee the Fashion Show during this year's annual Life Ball, one of the Worlds Largest HIV/AIDS Charities held annually in Vienna, Austria, on July 17 this year.
Actress/comedian Whoopi Goldberg, this year's official spokesperson for amFAR, will host Life Ball 2010. Life Ball is an annual fund-raising Gala that unites the Viennese ball tradition with opulence, extravagance, glamour, provocation, fancy performances, committed speeches as well as emotional moments.
Life Ball, which benefits the essential HIV/AIDS research and prevention programs of amFAR, will be held under the patronage of Barbara Prammer, the first female president of the Austrian Parliament. Guests of honor include former President Bill Clinton.
Diane von Furstenberg, Calvin Klein and Kenneth Cole will stage the Life Ball Fashion Show this year. Whoopi Goldberg will be hosting the AmFar dinner/gala earlier in the evening and across the street David Furnish, the partner of Elton John, will be hosting a Black Tie Gala for the EJAF.
“To my knowledge no one from Florida has ever been an official participant of Life Ball.....this is a huge honor for me to have been asked to be a part of such an incredible event,” Lancaster stated.” Life Ball founder, Gery Keszler, reached out to Elaine Lancaster because of her lifetime commitment to HIV/AIDS. Last year Lancaster celebrated her 10th year as the hostess for White Party, the largest HIV/AIDS charity event in South Florida. ??
Since 1993, world famous personalities and artists – “Ambassadors of Life” – have lent their voices and support to Life Ball, giving their time and effort to make the charitable event successful every year.
