DIFFA Cocktails and Dining by Design

| April 19, 2016 | Parties

From Thursday, March 17th through Monday, March 21st, Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS (DIFFA) hosted its signature event in support of their mission to raise funds for HIV/AIDS prevention, education and direct care. Their 19th Annual Dining by Design combined a worthy cause and exceptional design into a 4-day event that hosted 2,000 people at 2 fundraisers, with more than 45,000 visitors throughout the week. This year’s event raised nearly $800,000 for DIFFA’s grant making efforts. Throughout this special event, guests dined among the impressive installations with architecture and design industry friends, as well as fans of great design.

During the 4-day event, Cocktails by Design gathered designers and guests, who mingled and explored the dazzling installations while sampling treats from New York’s top restaurants and gourmet food purveyors, paired with cocktails by Patron. Guests had the opportunity to bid on the silent auction featuring a wide array of art, photography, travel and hospitality experiences.
