Life Ball piano to be auctioned on Ebay

A grand piano signed by celebrities including Sean Penn, Milla Jovovich, Antonio Banderas and Bill Clinton is to go on auction via Ebay between 10-15 June.

The official Life Ball Steinway Grand pianos represent 20 years of Life Ball and formed one of the highlights of this year's Life Ball Opening Ceremony under the motto "Fight the Flames of Ignorance".

The piano will be auctioned to the highest bidder in Austria or abroad on www.ebay.at.

The net proceeds will be donated to AIDS LIFE, the association behind the Life Ball. The grand piano served as a photo-setting for the 20 prominent patrons and was signed by them and other well-known Life Ball guests from different walks of life such as theatre, fashion, music, politics and art. The list price amounts to 73,140 Euros – the starting prize on eBay is 1 Euro.

Those interested can take a look at the grand piano at Steinway in Austria, Opernring 6-8, in Vienna’s 1st district.

People, whose bids for the "Official Life Ball Steinway Grand" were not accepted or that are particularly interested in one of the "Life Ball Limited Edition" pianos, can buy them in Steinway stores in Vienna, Salzburg, Linz and Innsbruck at special rates between 9,768 und 93,333 Euros. The net proceeds will also go towards AIDS LIFE to support national and international HIV and AIDS projects.

Further information can be found on www.steinwaysale.info/lifeball.
