Design, Food and Charity is a great combination for a summer event. It was my FIFTH year participating in DIFFA’s Picnic By Design. Past three years, I was able to work behind the scenes on the steering committee. Picnic By Design redefines the concept of a traditional picnic where 20 designers come together to create innovative picnic basket experiences that were auctioned with proceeds benefiting DIFFA, (Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS) a non-profit that promotes education for those living with AIDS/HIV through the creative arts. See my designs on the DESIGN PAGE.
