Design on a Dime 2014
Our 10th annual Design on a Dime benefit raised $1.1 million for the second year towards our housing expansion program for people living with HIV/AIDS in New York City. The 3-day interiors sale and reception was attended by over 3,000 people who shopped 64 rooms designed with floor to ceiling product for sale at deep discounts by some of the world’s top interior designers.
The Opening Night Reception was co-chaired by four of the interior industry’s influencers including: Michael Boodro, Editor in Chief, ELLE DECOR, Kevin Harter, VP for Fashion Direction, Fashion Office-Men’s, Home and Bloomingdales.com, George Oliphant, “George to the Rescue” and Sabrina Soto HGTV’s “High Low Project.” This year’s honorary chair was actress and AIDS activist Rosario Dawson.
Proceeds from Design on a Dime benefit Housing Works’ newest supportive housing development, the Hull Street Residence. Hull Street is a from-the-ground-up housing development project that will transform a vacant 6,000 sq ft. lot, into a beautiful and safe home for 26 single, formerly homeless adults living with HIV/AIDS.
Housing Works would like to thank the many Design on a Dime volunteers who worked to make this event a success as well as the designers, donors, committee and event sponsors for their time, dedication and talent.
We look forward to seeing you at next year’s Design on a Dime. Dates to be announced soon!
