DIFFA’s 4th annual Picnic by Design event 2015: Food, Design and Charity

Have you experienced a picnic on an urban rooftop yet? DIFFA’s (Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS) 4th annual Picnic by Design event is a pretty cool event that I have participated in for the past 3 years. It redefines the concept of a traditional picnic. Guests sip cocktails, savor picnic fare from fab NYC restaurants while bidding to win one-of-a-kind designer picnic baskets by enlisted top designers. The event is only a month away: Wednesday August 5th at Ramscale Studios 406 West Street, NYC at 6:00-9:00.  

Purchase tickets now and come say hello to me! The early bird ticket price is $125 and will increase to $150 the week prior to the event.

My picnic basket design is hush hush right now but I will be giving some snippets on my Instagram account soon. Here is an image of my Farm-Chic wheelbarrow design from last year:  

To add to the excitement, DIFFA is launching a social media campaign around the event, encouraging people across the country and globe to host their own picnics to raise awareness. Participants are invited to share snapshots of their gatherings with the hashtag #MakeaDIFFArence

Hope to see you there!
