ABOUT LOVE BALL & SUSANNE In 1989, Susanne Bartsch, a 30-year veteran of New York City nightlife, presented The Love Ball at Roseland Ballroom. Born from the devastation felt by the community of the many friends lost to AIDS, the gala event rallied the fashion community to raise awareness and funds that went directly to those affected by AIDS and hands-on organizations. Uniting high fashion celebrities with the ballroom community and Harlem Houses for the gala, the event was a huge success, cementing Bartsch as not only a nightlife icon but a humanitarian figure. In 1991, Bartsch presented a second iteration named Love Ball II to continue the work and raise even more funds. Love Ball I and II raised over $2.5 million for those affected by AIDS, and supported hands-on organizations working against the disease.
