The Leipzig Opera Ball

A cultural lighthouse project by Porsche Leipzig

Porsche fulfils its social responsibility in the Leipzig region in many ways. In addition to its commitment to sport, the environment, education and social issues, the sports car manufacturer also supports cultural life in the city. Since 2013, Porsche has been a presenter at the annual Leipzig Opera Ball. The commitment also includes the annual provision of an attractive Porsche model as the main prize for the donation raffle. "The Leipzig Opera Ball is not only a cultural highlight, but also serves a good purpose in a special way. Thanks to the raffle proceeds, which benefit the 'Leipzig hilft Kindern' foundation, many projects in the region can be realised," says Gerd Rupp, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche Leipzig GmbH. So far, a total of more than 700,000 euros has been raised. This money is used to support a wide range of projects - from exercise to healthy nutrition, counselling, bereavement counselling, children's museums and language courses.

"Seeing how the proceeds of the Opera Ball raffle have developed over the years to support such causes fills us with pride and joy," says Vivian Honert-Boddin, Managing Director of Opernball Leipzig Production GmbH. "We are grateful that our long-standing partner Porsche has made the Leipzig Opera Ball raffle so unique with its generous donation of a vehicle." The raffled models always have a specific motto. For example, to mark the anniversary of "70 years of Porsche sports cars" in 2018, there was a 718 Boxster in the configuration of the Porsche 356 "No. 1" Roadster - the first sports car built under the Porsche name in 1948 - to be won. In 2023, a fully electric vehicle was up for grabs for the first time - a Taycan in the colour "Star Ruby".

Another highlight of the raffle is the accompaniment of a celebrity "fairy godmother" during the draw. This important role was played by tennis player Angelique Kerber, actress Sonja Kirchberger, crime scene inspector Richy Müller and Hollywood star and Porsche brand ambassador Patrick Dempsey, among others.

Opera Ball 2023

"Hej Sverige, Välkommen!" Under the motto "Hej Sverige, Välkommen!" 2,000 guests danced through the 28th edition of the Leipzig Opera Ball - inspired by this year's partner country Sweden. Porsche accompanied the popular civic ball for the tenth time as presenter. Traditionally, the sports car manufacturer donates the main prize of the Opera Ball raffle, the proceeds of which go to the "Leipzig hilft Kindern" foundation. This year, a total of 125,000 euros was collected, which will support, among others, the foster children's service of the city of Leipzig and the children's choir "Die Bunten Tauben". The lucky winner was delighted with a Porsche Taycan in the gaudy colour "star ruby". In addition to the "Leipzig Opera Ball 2023" lettering on the front door sills, the 380 hp main prize is also adorned with a "75" on the rear door sills. This refers to the anniversary "75 years of sports cars" which was celebrated in 2023. "The motto of our brand is 'Driven by Dreams'. And this thought also guides us in our social commitment," says Albrecht Reimold, Member of the Executive Board for Production and Logistics at Porsche AG. "As a partner of society, we want to make dreams come true. That is why we have always provided attractive Porsche models as the main prizes for the Opera Ball's charity raffle. Year after year, we thus help to generate record proceeds for the charitable foundation 'Leipzig hilft Kindern'. A great success that we are happy to continue in the coming year."
