dining by design


Friday night I attended the 'Taste & Hop" for the DIFFA Dining By Design event. More on DIFFA...
"DIFFA: Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS is one of the country's largest supporters of direct care for people living with HIV/AIDS and preventive education for those at risk. Merging care and commerce, supporters of DIFFA come from all fields of fine design and the visual arts, including: architecture, fashion design, interior design, photography and consumer product design.
With fundraising efforts bolstered by strategic partnerships and unique events showcasing innovation and creativity, DIFFA has mobilized the immense resources of the design communities and granted over $38 million to hundreds of AIDS service organizations nationwide."

The idea behind this event is various companies, florists, designers, store owners, furniture dealers etc team up to create these elaborate tables. On Saturday night, its a huge formal dinner party with dancing and auctions. Friday night is a more casual option for people to come in and get a taste of the fabulous catering and cocktails while wandering around checking out the tables. A few of my favorites...
