October 23, 2017 /3BL Media/ - On October 21, 2017: The “GOLDEN BILD DER FRAU” awards were presented for the 11th time in Hamburg, aboard AIDAprima.

For the first time, AIDA Cruises hosted this awards ceremony which is staged by Europe’s biggest women’s magazine (Bild der Frau) at which six women are honored for their civil courage and charitable efforts.

The focus of the evening was on this year’s award winners – Anja Gehlken, Ninon Demuth, Bettina Landgrafe, Barbara Stäcker, Julia Cissewski and Sylke Hoß.

“It is a great pleasure and honor for us to host the GOLDENE BILD DER FRAU gala this year. The dedication of all award winners deserves our greatest respect because these everyday heroines have shown that an incredible amount can be achieved with courage, warm-heartedness and creativity. We are delighted to support the projects awarded today with 10,000 euro each,” said Felix Eichhorn, President of AIDA Cruises, who as well spontaneously invited the award winners to a cruise aboard AIDAprima.

To start off the event, TV star and host Kai Pflaume welcomed 550 guests from the worlds of politics, business and showbiz at AIDAprima’s Theatrium. Among them Katarina Barley, Federal Minister for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth, Thomas Heinze, Herbert Knaup, Mareile Höppner, Sophie Wepper, Elisabeth Lanz, Tim Mälzer, Tim Mälzer, Jorge Gonzáles and soccer player Hans Sarpei. World star Anastacia created a goosebump atmosphere with her surprise appearance and a very emotional laudation for one of the award winners.

After the solemn awards ceremony, the after-show party in the Beach Club was celebrated until midnight. Numerous AIDAprima guests also followed the GOLDEN BILD DER FRAU awards ceremony live on board or on large screens at the terminal party in the Cruise Center Steinwerder.
