Every November, the Austrian Society of Montreal hosts the Viennese Ball, an evening that unites European tradition with fundraising. The first ever ball was held in support of SOS Children’s Villages in 1962. Fast forward to today and SOS continues to be the primary beneficiary of this event’s proceeds. Themed differently every year, the Viennese Ball brings generations and cultures together to celebrate an evening of Austrian music, culinary delights, tradition, and customs.
On November 16th 2019, the Viennese Ball of Montreal will celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the Vienna State Opera. Over the years, the Vienna State Opera has seen countless performances of operas and ballets, world premieres, famous conductors and directors and remains at the center of cultural life in Vienna and in Austria.
Attending this celebration both funds SOS Children’s Villages in its determination to better the lives of children, and supports the Ball in its efforts to preserve Viennese culture in Montreal. The totality of the funds raised by the Ball’s silent auction will directly support the work of SOS Children’s Villages.
We would like to thank businesses that donated prizes to this year’s Viennese Ball silent auction!
If you are unable to attend, but wish to make a donation in support of SOS Children's Villages Canada, you may do so here. Your support will help transform the lives of the most vulnerable.
