DIFFA Dining by Design Detroit Spans 3 Days

The Michigan AIDS Coalition (MAC) in partnership with DIFFA: Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS will host the fourth annual Dining by Design event in Detroit later this month.

Presented by Opportunity Detroit, three events will unite talented individuals from the interior design, art and architecture fields to fight HIV/AIDS. Set for Sept. 26-28, the event will be held at the former Federal Reserve Building in Detroit. Tickets are on sale now.

"This year is shaping up to be our most exciting yet," said Terry Ryan, CEO for MAC. "With the generous support of our sponsors, we think this will be DIFFA Detroit's most successful fundraiser to date, which is a tremendous blessing for HIV/AIDS services in Michigan."

Co-chairs for DIFFA: Dining by Design are Jennifer Gilbert from Doodle Home, Ann Duke from Tapper's Diamonds & Fine Jewelry and Kelly Deines from Rossetti.

The schedule of events is as follows:
