Today and tomorrow, Real Simple– along with co-chairs Maggie Gyllenhaal, designer James Huniford and Real Simple’s managing editor Kristin van Ogtrop — are hosting the fourth-annual Design on a Dime charity event to benefit Housing Works, the nation’s largest community-based AIDS-service organization.
The kick-off party was yesterday (sorry I didn’t get this up sooner) and today and tomorrow’s events are free and open to the public. It is being held at the Metropolitan Pavilion at 125 West 18th Street, NYC.
During the event, thirty top-tier designers—including Sills Huniford, Thom Filicia, Charlotte Moss and Jamie Drake—will create breathtaking, one-of-a-kind room vignettes. People will be able to purchase the items in the vignettes at 60-80% off the retail price and all proceeds from the sale will benefit Housing Works.
Founded in 1990, Housing Works provides housing, medical care, job training and other lifesaving services to homeless and low-income New Yorkers living with HIV/AIDS.
Shopping for a cause. I like that.
