This is the woman at his side

The Hahnenkamm ”Snowciety” opened the Kitz round with Arnie’s charity dinner. Gabalier showed up with his “soul friend”.

When the “Styrian Oak” calls Arnold Schwarzenegger to a charity dinner, then of course the celebrities stand by their guns. These were, for example: “Folk Rock’n’Roller” Andreas Gabalier, who showed up with his “soul friend”: the Viennese gallery owner Lisa Kandlhofer. The two posed very familiarly on the red carpet. No wonder, the two are said to have known each other since kindergarten and also went to elementary school and high school together. In previous interviews, however, he stated: “She is my best friend” – so there are no romantic feelings involved.

Host Arnold Schwarzenegger was accompanied to the event at the Stanglwirt by daughter Christina and friend Heather Milligan. In a classy suit and red tie, he was clearly in a good mood. However, one had to wait in vain for a word donation on his part. Instead, as soon as he had done his celebrity duty, he walked down the red carpet in the direction of the indoor riding arena, where numerous exhibits were to go under the hammer, framed by a chic dinner.

Among them were: A humidor with a clear Terminator reference, skis signed by Lindsey Vonn, an exact replica of the leather jacket from “Terminator 2”, a picture of his friend and amateur painter, Hollywood star Sylvester Stallone, a work of art by Gottfried Helnwein or a painting from the Pen by the Brazilian artist Romero Britto, who previously showed himself extensively and happily posing on the red carpet. In any case, according to the organizer, the proceeds benefit the “Schwarzenegger Climate Initiative”, which, among other things, organizes the “Austrian World Summit” in Vienna every May and supports climate projects worldwide.
