"SHINE"

6-9pm

The NWBLK

Tickets at diffadesigns.org


A showcase of unique design objects built by THE San Francisco Bay Area's top talent in architecture, interior design, product design, graphic arts, landscape architecture, fashion, and traditional arts.


With its artistic muse as “Shine”, DIFFA DESIGNS 2016 will make The NWBLK gallery bright and luminous with a carefully curated collection of unique or tailored design objects – fine art, fashion, furniture – all offered in a live or silent auction at the fun-filled, fund-raising cocktail reception.

DIFFA is known for showcasing the most innovative design talent, and for DIFFA DESIGNS 2016, we are curating a limited number of “must-have” artistic objects of desire. With chapters across the country, DIFFA has granted more than $41 million to organizations nationwide that provide direct care for people living with HIV/AIDS and preventive education for those at risk. 

Proceeds from our 2015 event in San Francisco provided a $60,000 DIFFA grant to the UCSF Positive Health Program at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center, which cares for the more than 3,000 men, women and children with HIV/AIDS.

A CHARITABLE HISTORY IN THE BAY AREA

DIFFA NOW

In 2014, we decided to move away from Dining By Design, an event we ran for 13 years in San Francisco. DIFFA NOW was a curated gallery experience of 30 unique design objects created or provided for the event by some of the Bay Area’s top designers offered for sale in a silent auction. Objects reflect “30” as the design muse, indicative of Bay Area creativity in the past, present or future. Enjoy food and beverage from some of the Bay Area's top chefs, mixologists, and vineyards.
