The Munich Aids Concert, organized annually by the Münchener Kammerorchester (Munich Chamber Orchestra, MKO), is one of Munich’s prime charity events. On April 11, the Prinzregententheater (approx. Prince Regent Theatre) in Munich was the venue for the 13. edition of the event, which featured classic music artists such as soprano Dorothea Röschmann, pianist Elisabeth Leonskaja, violonist Kian Soltani, and the Lucas & Arthur Jussen piano duo; they were conducted by Clemens Schuldt.
For the sixth year in a row, the students of Munich Business School supported the Munich Aids Concert by organizing the raffle of the event. Over the course of several months, students collected around 900 prizes – from books, CDs, and wine to a large assortment of gift certificates for concerts, sports events, and stores. The top prizes included signed jerseys of football stars Mario Götze and Mats Hummels, Murano vase, and porcelain ware from Porzellanmanufaktur.
A New Record
During the event, 23 MBS students sold lots, and raised an impressive amount of € 10,400 – a new record for the raffle. The proceeds will be donated to the Münchner Aids-Hilfe (Munich Aids Help Service), a local voluntary service committed to supporting Aids victims.
Once again, we are very proud of the committment and dedication of our students, who managed to organize the raffle alongside doing their studies. Many thanks to all of you, what a great feat! We also would like to thank the numerous companies and organizations who provided our students with lots of great prizes!
