Out on the Town: Design on a Dime Raises Money to End AIDS Epidemic


Housing Works, a leading AIDS-service and advocacy organization, hosted its highly-anticipated fundraising event, Design on a Dime, in Miami on February 3-4th, 2018, at the Moore Building located in the Miami Design District. The two-day benefit raised over $400,000 in support of Housing Works’ mission to end AIDS.

Now in it’s third year, interior designers and influential tastemakers from across the country created unique vignettes featuring furniture, art and home décor merchandise, which was donated directly from top brands and sold for up to 80% off retail at the event, with all proceeds funding Housing Works’ “AIDS-FREE-USA 2025” campaign which plans to end the AIDS epidemic nationally by 2025.
