Great news. Design Industry Foundation Fighting AIDS (DIFFA), will be having a most fabulous event next week, Wednesday, August 22nd. The activities will start at 7pm. I have a feeling that Picnic By Design will probably be the most talked about summer soiree. This is a worthy cause, where you'll get to enjoy an urban rooftop picnic and movie night with their unique and fully equipped picnic basket for two, designed by several talented designers.
In addition to all the festivities going on that evening, three fortunate guests will have the option of purchasing the ultimate VIP “Chef’s Choice” baskets designed by Chef Geoffrey Zakarian in collaboration with Marchesa, Chef Eric Ripert in collaboration with my friend, Marie from Marie Aillo Design Studio, and Chef Paul Liebrandt with Whoopi Goldberg. TUG Studio is scheduled to participate as well.
I'm feeling ravenous just thinking about the tasty snacks by Capital Grille, Bella Cucina, Murray's Cheese, and drinks from La Crema Wines. I'm also looking forward to the laughter and cheers, as well as the opportunity of making new friends. An exclusive screening of “Making the Boys”, the documentary about the making of “The Boys in the Band” will also take place. Baskets will be sold in advance and I've been told that they are quite limited already. Visit their official website at: www.picnicbydesign.org. See you next week!
