DINING BY DESIGN

DBD logo 2013DINING BY DESIGN brings together internationally celebrated designers and local talent to create three dimensional dining installations that awe, inspire, and delight. These extraordinary dining environments—from the lavish and romantic to the outrageous and whimsical—set the stage for five days of fun and fundraising. For the sixth consecutive year, the event was in conjunction with the Architectural Digest Home Design Show at Pier 94.

The New York event, held March 20-24, 2014, kicked off our celebration of DIFFA‘s 30th anniversary. With record crowds, DIFFA raised over $700,000 in support of its mission to fight HIV/AIDS.  From the incredible table sponsors to the volunteers to those who participated in the silent auction, we were overwhelmed by the creativity and generosity shown.
