“Don´t listen to the naysayers! People said to me last year that another event in Kitzbühel won´t work – that there are already too many parties and we didn’t need another fundraiser. And today, we are completely sold out and we are raising a fortune for a great cause. But I always say there is no such thing as a self-made man. We could not have done this without our fantastic team and all of you who bought tickets. Thank you all for making this evening a success,” Arnold Schwarzenegger welcomed his 150 guests at the first Charity Dinner for Climate Action in Kitzbühel. At the auction, works of art, props from Schwarzenegger’s movies, jewellery and exclusive activities were auctioned off by famous auctioneer Simon de Pury. Particular highlights like a training session with Arnold himself, a signed leather jacket from the movie Terminator 2 and a self-portrait by Sylvester Stallone were especially sought-after auction items and bidders all wanted to be a part of the climate action. The 900.000 Euros will go to the “Schwarzenegger Climate Initiative”, which organizes the international climate conference AUSTRIAN WORLD SUMMIT in Vienna every year and supports climate projects worldwide.
