COVID-19 postponed the Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS annual gala for two years but not the giving.
“DIFFA/Dallas was still able to grant more than $600,000 to North Texas AIDS Service Organizations throughout the pandemic,” DIFFA Dallas chair David White said on May 7 at the long awaited House of DIFFA: EXTRAVAGANZA.
More than 1,400 guests attended the signature gala, chaired by Clint Bradley, Justin Bundick, Brittanie Buchanan Oleniczak, and Jim DiMarino, at the Omni Dallas Hotel.
Awards went to Rob Bradford (Impact in Fashion Award), Morris Dental Clinic (Health Award), George Cameron Nash (Excellence in Design Award), Michael Bauer (Legacy of Love Award), Tim LeDuc (Donna Fishel Community Hero Award), and Joyce and Kenny Goss (Legend in the Fight Against AIDS).
The evening included a live auction, a runway show featuring Neiman Marcus, Forty Five Ten, and Traffic LA, and the House of DIFFA After Party.
