From Thursday, March 16th through Monday, March 20th, DIFFA: Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS (DIFFA) hosted its signature event Dining By Design New York in support of its mission to raise funds for HIV/AIDS prevention, education and direct care. Recognized as one of the premier fundraising events in the design industry, it gathered internationally celebrated designers and local talent to create extraordinary dining environments. The 20th Annual Dining By Design combined a worthy cause and exceptional design into a 5-day event that hosted 2,000 people at the two fundraisers and 45,000 throughout the week. This year’s event raised nearly $800,000 toward DIFFA’s grant making efforts. Since inception in 1997, DBD has raised more than $13 million toward DIFFA’s work to fight HIV/AIDS.
