Held annually in March, DIFFA invites local and international designers to transform a raw space into a showcase of over-the-top dining environments for its annual fundraiser for HIV/AIDS—DINING BY DESIGN (DBD). Co-located with the Architectural Digest Design Show, DIFFA’s signature event gathers thousands of supporters at Pier 92 in New York City to fundraise for a cause. This year’s 20th Annual DINING BY DESIGN will combine a worthy cause and exceptional design into a 5-day event with more than 2,000 people at the two fundraisers.
