From April 21-23 2016, ELLE DECOR joined with Housing Works as the national media sponsor of the organization’s annual Design on a Dime fundraiser. Featuring over
68 vignettes by notable interior designers, the three day event raised over $1.2MM for Housing Works—an organization committed to ending HIV/AIDS by 2020.
ELLE DECOR created a sculpture garden vignette, comprised of select products from Calligaris, Fermob, Global Views, and Loloi Rugs. Partners Natuzzi and Littman Brands also participated in the event with their own designated vignettes, displaying beautiful product and design.
Comedian Billy Eichner officiated at the VIP opening night with over 3,000 guests who shopped the best in design at “compassionate prices”.
Editor in Chief Michael Boodro served as co-chair, along with influential designers Alessandra Branca, Nicole Gibbons, television host George Oliphant, actress Marisa Tomei and photographer Douglas Friedman, also known as The Facinator.
