People from all walks came out last night to support DIFFA's 2009 DINING BY DESIGN National Tour: architecture, fashion design, the arts, consumer products and... reality television? DIFFA, which stands for Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS, held a gala dinner event last night at Pier 94, including table-hopping and showing of the design installations, a delicious dinner with wine pairings, and a conclusion of dancing and a silent auction.
