Housing Works Will Host Design on a Dime Benefit in NYC

Housing Works will host its annual DOAD (Design on a Dime) benefit April 20-22. This highly anticipated event brings together shoppable vignettes and collections curated by interior designers for a shopping experience featuring an assortment of luxury home decor, furnishings and art. The three-day event returns to the Metropolitan Pavilion with a lineup of renowned designers.

Shopping will begin on April 20 with a series of ticketed affairs that include a VIP opening reception and early-access shopping, culminating in a sale that is open to the public April 21-22. Tickets are now available for purchase at

New this year is the Design on a Dime Communications Council who have come together to enlist talent, secure one-of-a-kind donations, and bring greater attention (and resources) to the vital mission of Housing Works. The Communication Council includes: Claire Bamundo, Molly Bates, Lisa Ben-Isvy, Elizabeth Blitzer, Sarah Boyd, Chesie Breen, Julia Duke, Christina Juarez, Michael McGraw, Ellen Niven and Raymond Schneider.

The DOAD participating designers will each create vignettes, showcasing a collection of art and brand-new luxury furnishings, donated by hundreds of the most recognized brands and makers in the home market.

Marked up to 80% off retail prices, the expertly curated assortment of high-end merchandise will be sold to benefit Housing Works' lifesaving services and advocacy.
