Oscar Isberian Rugs is once again proud to sponsor and host a table at DIFFA’s Dining by Design 2012. The event will be on Saturday November 3 at 7pm at the Merchandise Mart.

New this year, the three dimensional dining installations will feature a Sustainable Mission and our new Emerging Designer Program. These one-of-a-kind creative spaces assemble some of the most talented, creative and celebrated individuals in the Chicago design community and pair them with our generous Table Hosts. This year Kaufman Segal Design will be creating the space. They are one of the leading design firms in Chicago and they will be sure to make a spectacular dining space.

DIFFA/Chicago (The Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS) is a not-for-profit fundraising and grant making foundation that distributes funds to Chicago area HIV/AIDS service agencies that provide direct service, preventative education and outreach to people who are HIV positive, living with AIDS or at risk for infection. Founded in 1984, DIFFA has granted more than $38 million to hundreds of community-based organizations.

Founded by volunteers from the fashion industry, interior design, furnishings and architecture, supporters of DIFFA now come from every field associated with fine design. DIFFA has also been an innovative agent in drawing local and national corporations into the fight against the epidemic, and enjoys tremendous support from the business community. In Chicago, our Excellence in Care Awards funding focuses on those agencies that demonstrate extraordinary effectiveness in achieving their chosen missions in the HIV/AIDS arena.
