Housing Works celebrated its ninth annual Design on a Dime, where leaders in the design community came together to help raise funds for homeless people and those living with HIV/AIDS held at Metropolitan Pavilion.This year’s Design on a Dime was an exhilarating success, with a record-breaking 62 room vignettes curated by leading designers such as Huniford by James Huniford, Patrick James Hamilton Design, Foley & Cox Interiors, and this year’s Design on a Dime co-chairs: Yetta Banks, Genevieve Gorder, Evette Rios, Sabrina Soto, and Lara Spencer.

Highly coveted items included everything from one-of-a-kind sofas, kitchenware, framed art, and rare photographs, including portraits of Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, Patti Smith, Lady Gaga, and the always-coveted Ryan Gosling. In addition, Danielle Colding Design’s vignette room sold out, as did co-chair Evette Rios’s room.

Co-chair Evette Rios, a New York native, expressed her love for Housing Works and our work on behalf of those living with HIV/AIDS. “I have been a fan of Housing Works for so long now, and am so proud to be a part of an event like Design on a Dime, which does so much for people who have so little.”

Genevieve Gorder for Valspar Paints echoed the same sentiment, saying, “I just think it’s so wonderful to see the Design community come together on behalf of New York’s HIV/AIDS community.”

All of Design on a Dime’s funds going toward Housing Works’ housing for people living with HIV/AIDS. This year’s proceeds will go toward finishing up our Jefferson Avenue Residence as well as our new Hull Street Residence in Brooklyn. For more info, please visit www.HousingWorks.org
