Dozens of New York Designers create tabletops for the DIFFA show here in New York.  The $$$ raised is for support of the AIDS programs………helping victims with their financial needs……housing….meds………whatever they need.

 

 

This is the 2oth year that I have supported the foundation….it is such a good cause.

 

 

DINNER with DIFFA

Dinner with DIFFA on the pier in the Hudson River is always a glamorous night.

I chose this setting as my favorite place to dine.  LOVE the chairs……each is covered with a dress.
