Since Licht ins Dunkel was reversed by Kurt Bergmann for the Austrian Broadcasting (Corporation ORF) launched in 1973, developed the idea of a small fundraiser (then proceeds from donations: 2,500 euros) to a non-profit organization, which mobilized each year over 12 million euros in donations.

The support of social projects is the RENESIM team heart and taken for granted.

Georg Schmidt-Sailer, founder and CEO of RENÉSIM, expressed his reasons as follows: “light in the dark is a very special organization, which has probably grown any Austrians on the heart. For me as the Austrians and founder of RENESIM it is a double pleasure to be part of this effort and to set an example and to support the excellent work of the initiators.”
The final gala of the “night tour” studios in Vienna took place by 2015 for the 18th time in the interbank spot. The highlight of the evening was the auction of objects that were made by companies and individuals available. Many of the ersteigerbaren objects are in any transaction to acquire: A private ski day with the Austrian alpine skier, Armin Assinger, including two nights in a luxury hotel, a tea party at the Imperial Palace with the Austrian Federal President Heinz Fischer himself, an overnight stay for 8 persons in a castle together with princely dinners or the opportunity to experience how to qualify the Austrian national team for the European Football Championship. Richard Grasl, commercial Director of the ORF: “what you are can not buy, nowadays very little is worth.” “And if the donated price for this addition is for a good cause, it’s worth twice as much.”
So the guests in maximum generous mood came, they were indulged also maximum: there were flavours thanks to the gala dinner hosted by do & that made “Beautiful beautiful beautiful” ensemble of the Vienna games of of Chamber of co. and the TV chefs Andi Wojta and Alex Fankhauser, for background music. Actress Ruth Bauer Kvam brings the philosophy of Licht ins Dunkel initiative to the point: “If I do this in my small area, anything I can do to help is good and if everyone does that, happens very much.” Also her colleague Marika lights shares this setting: “there are very many people in need – you have to help them easily. It is our duty as a people, that’s all right.” Entertainer Gregor gloss occurred not only live and this caused another musical “shine” in the truest sense of the word, but settled in addition – already for the second time – the action Licht ins Dunkel himself auction: “last year, there were €10,000 who have come together.

This “Serving fitness” purchased is Hans Peter Spak Feinkost producer: “to the Gala next year I’ll be here quite narrow and ten kilos lighter sit”, he comments on his win with a wink.

On the question of a such individual preparation is how expensive and difficult, Rudolf Semrad, former Director-General of the Swatch Group Austria and current partner at RENÉSIM replied: “Although I am not the designer, but I see it on the basis of the professional force, which have the two.” Maximilian Hemmerle, also RENÉSIM founder and Managing Director, and at the same time jewelry designer in 5. Generation, smirked at this point eloquently: “for one, what is difficult is an expert mainly pleasure.”
The entrepreneur Hansjörg Tengg seized the chance, prevailed over numerous Mitsteigerer and thereby acquired this unique experience for his wife, Rafaela Miller to Aichholz. A first creative exchange between client and designer is already ensued within the framework of the gala night. It should be a ring in the style of the famous sapphire engagement ring, the Duchess of Cambridge. So the ring with a diamond-framed, mounted in white gold Sapphire by Kate Middleton served as inspiration, the result should meet the personal taste of woman by Miller to Aichholz but of course still in all details. In the days after the auction was therefore – in the style of RENÉSIM – more voting via telephone and exchanging Maximilian Hemmerles specially made sketches. At the end, client and designer opted for an absolute dream combination: A hand-picked, deep blue Sapphire oval facet cut with 3.24 carat, framed by 12 brilliant-cut diamonds with a total of 1.2 carats, in an elegant ring of high fine Platinum. A few days after the decision of the ring was also ready – made by goldsmith and barrel masters in Munich.
