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 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.
The Design Industry in New York does make a DIFFArence!
The money raised at this benefit goes to help the victims who are living with HIV/AIDS.
“Darling don’t be like the rest of them………..”
You too can pull up a chair………..next year. Cocktails are $500 and and dinner is $1000.

BILLI KID was at the DIFFA expo on Pier 92 this past week-end. Billi is probably the most talented of the street artists in New York.
To attract attention to those most at risk of contracting AIDS, Billi has invited 22 street artists to paint a RED TRAFFIC STOP SIGNS as part of a campaign to make young pople aware that HIV/AIDS still exists and that wearing a CONDOM can prevent it.
Attention getting CONDOM COVERS……..
Billi has donated his art to the auction to help raise money for DIFFA…….
he wants to make a DIFFArence.
BILLI with his design. The STOP SIGNS have become CONDOM WRAPPERS.

The designers this year for DINING BY DESIGN are all proud supporters of DIFFA in their fight against AIDS. I applaud all of them for their creative contributions. Millions of dollars will be raised thanks to their efforts…….working side by side to really make a DIFFArence.
RALPH LAUREN HOME has designed a vignette that reflects the spirit on “attic living”…………with the roof tops of Paris out the window [yes, I would love to move right in].
