diffa 2017

The 20th Annual DINING BY DESIGN hosted by DIFFA: Design Industries Foundations Fighting AIDS is a five-day celebration, which gathered more than 2,000 guests during the two fundraising events, raised nearly $1 million toward DIFFA’s mission to fight HIV/AIDS. The signature New York fundraiser, hosted at Pier 92, combines extravagant design and renowned designers and brands to raise funds and awareness for DIFFA’s grant-making efforts. Local and international designers and brands pooled their talents to transform a raw 33,000 square foot space into an immersive exhibit filled with opulent and conceptual tabletops. Sponsors included Benjamin Moore, Ralph Lauren, ED Ellen DeGeneres and Thomasville, Crate and Barrel, The New York Design Center and the Rockwell Group—most of which have supported this event almost since its inception.
