The "Don't Miss" Event of the Season: DINING BY DESIGN San Francisco

The most exciting and glamorous designer event of the year in San Francisco is coming soon! For an inspiring and magical evening don't miss DINING BY DESIGN , co-produced by DIFFA and the AIDS Research Institute at the University of California, San Francisco, this November.

The Gala Dinner (formal and fabulous!) is Thursday, November 19 and the Table Hop & Taste (fun cocktail party!) is Wednesday, November 18. Get your tickets now so you don't miss out on an evening or two at the glamorous Galleria in the San Francisco Design Center!

I can tell you from my own personal experience (I designed a table for the event) that this is a unique and magical extravaganza.

This signature fundraising event showcases the most inspired dining installations created by a talented and intriguing cast of designer, architects, personalities and artists. You will not be disappointed.

DINING BY DESIGN travels through eight US cities and has granted more than $38 million for the fight against HIV/AIDS. DINING BY DESIGN in San Francisco benefits the UCSF Positive Health Program (PHP) at San Francisco General Hospital.

What I love about this is that the programs developed to treat and prevent HIV/AIDS here ultimately benefit poverty-stricken populations in the most wretched areas of the developing world also.

So you see, you can't go wrong! See you there, on the side of the angels!


We are again this year donating a few days at our family's seaside Mexican villa, Casa Gala in Sayulita, to the Silent Auction....you'll want to bid on this wonderfully relaxing and enchanting holiday!
