Last night, Housing Works hosted their 5th Annual Design on a Dime event.  Guests like Ty Pennington, Parker Posey, Robert Verdi, Simon van Kempen and Alex McCord came to enjoy some VIP shopping and the party.  The sale continues through tomorrow at the Metropolitan Pavilion on W. 18th Street. Tickets start at $150. More info about Design on a Dime below... Created by Design on a Dime co-chair James Huniford, of Huniford Design Studio, Design on a Dime has raised $2 million for Housing Works, Inc., New York’s largest AIDS service organization. Last year alone Design on a Dime raised $650,000 for Housing Works.

Design on a Dime will help provide funding for projects such as Housing Works’ recently opened congregate living facility, Stand Up Harlem House. Housing Works renovated three classic Harlem brownstones to create the residence, which now provides 16 apartments to homeless and low-income individuals and families affected by HIV and AIDS.
