On March 30, 2009, DINING BY DESIGN debuted at Skylight in New York. This Tribeca gallery was a perfect backdrop to showcase the extraordinary design installations. Evette Rios of the Rachel Ray Show visited the event and spoke with some of the designers about their DBD experience!
DBD New York 2008
The 9th Anniversary of DIFFA’s DINING BY DESIGN event took place in 2006 at The Waterfront in New York City and proved once again to be a smashing success. The design community poured its creative energy and resources into the design and installation of 60 diverse and extraordinary dining environments and raised over $800,000 that was granted to service organizations for HIV/AIDS education and prevention.
Enjoy this peek behind the scenes of 2006’s event as we gear up for an even bigger, better, more fabulous, and more over-the-top event in 2009!
BEHIND THE BASH
“It is amazing to discover how such talented interior designers can create dining fantasies in these intimate spaces. Add to this that DIFFA’s DINING BY DESIGN provides help to those challenged by AIDS and you have an evening that is pure magic.”
“DIFFA’s DINING BY DESIGN is a testament to the power of creativity and beauty in the face of hardship. The entire design community gathers, rolls up their sleeves, and works their butts off to make a spectacle. Every year I can’t wait to go, and every year I hope that a cure will make DINING BY DESIGN unnecessary.”
