As some of you know we have been working with DIFFA (Design Industry Foundation For Fighting Aids) for only a short time, but the impact this organization has had on us and our associates is immeasurable.
After participating in the Dining By Design event at the Architectural Digest Show, we had the opportunity to get to know Peggy Bellar, the Director of Special Events. She has an incredible passion for the cause and for the design industry as a whole. She invited Dwayne and me to meet with a few other young designers to talk about the future of DIFFA and what the new generation of designers has to offer the charity. The new group, a collection of interior designers, architects, and product designers, was cohesive from the start. Can you say “love at first sight”?
DIFFA’s Summer Soiree Series was rapidly approaching, and we decided it was our opportunity to breathe new life into the off season. So here we are! Our first fund raising event taken on by this new, energetic, and extremely passionate group of designers…..
“Picnic By Design”, is a fundraiser taking place on August 22nd at the rooftop lawn of MIMA. Guests can purchase a Designer crafted ”picnic basket” with all the fixings inside for a delicious open air gustatory experience. There are also a few VIP Baskets that pair a celebrity with a fantastic chef! All these baskets will be available for purchase or auction online at www.picnicbydesign.org . The evening will also include an outdoor screening of ”Making the Boys” (a documentary about the making of “The Boys in the Band”). For those of you in the NYC Metro Area, we’d love to see you there!
