High-style design event to benefit local AIDS organizations
High-style design event to benefit local AIDS organizations
The Seattle chapter of DIFFA (Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS) will host a unique event celebrating high-style design on Thursday, May 11, from 6 to 9 pm. Tagged "GLAM! - think outside the box" proceeds from the event benefit DIFFA, which grants funds to local HIV/AIDS service organizations.

Staged amidst the designer showrooms Masins new Pioneer Square furniture store, partygoers will enjoy DJ music, wine, hors d'oeuvres, and signature cocktails, as well as modeled fashions and jewelry displays from DIFFA sponsors Barneys New York and Cartier. Central to the evening will be a unique raffle and silent auction of more than 25 custom-made designer boxes, filled with luxury products, home d├ęcor items and other glam goodies. Created specifically for the event by local artists and designers, the boxes take inspiration from participating box sponsors & donors such as Tiffany & Co, Ralph Lauren, Graham Webb, Playboy, Cartier, Barneys New York, MAC Cosmetics, W Seattle, and Pacific Northwest Ballet, to name just a few.

Suggested donation is $20. Guests are asked to support DIFFA through the purchase of raffle tickets ($10 each) and volunteers will be on hand to accept donations throughout the evening.

DIFFA, Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS, recently observed its 20th anniversary as the oldest and one of the largest funders of HIV/AIDS service and education providers in the U.S. Since its founding in 1984, DIFFA has mobilized the immense resources of the design communities to provide over $35 million to hundreds of AIDS organizations nationwide. The Seattle chapter of DIFFA was formed in 1993, and has granted nearly $400,000 to local HIV/AIDS programs. Recent grant recipients include Lifelong AIDS Alliance, Bailey-Boushay House, Rosehedge AIDS Housing, and the Seattle/King County Humane Society's "Pet Project" AIDS Outreach Program.

RSVP is required for entry. Please call (206) 763-8885 or visit
