The event follows a successful "WHITE OUT" in 2016 and "Light The Night" in 2015, which totaled over $15,000 in funds towards the cause. Additionally, the event program will include a raffle featuring a Source Stash Chair, a sushi package from National, a terrarium from Sprout Home and more.

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 to provide direct services, 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 $40 million to hundreds of community-based organizations nationwide.
