Event description

Description

We are thrilled to announce Housing Works’ 15th annual Design on a Dime fundraising event on from April 23-27, 2019.

Design on a Dime, founded in 2004 by Designer James Huniford, challenges interior designers to create unique room vignettes curated with donated merchandise from well-known home decor brands and artists. All merchandise in these one-of-a-kind rooms is then sold at charitable prices to design-savvy attendees.

Since its inception, the event has raised over $15 million. With two locations, Miami, and New York, Design on a Dime will bring together an estimated 100 interior designers, over 800 top home decor brands, and nearly 6,000 guests.

We currently needs TONS of help on April 25th from 4:30 pm to 10:00 pm. If you're looking for something exciting and high energy, that's definitely the shift for you!

Proceeds

Design on a Dime 2019 benefits Housing Works' efforts to provide lifesaving services, including healthcare and housing, to New Yorkers living with and affected by HIV/AIDS and homelessness.
