Life is sometimes a dream.
This year I’ve spent on DIFFA Style Council has been simply amazing. There really aren’t any other words. I’m so thankful for the wonderful people I’ve met and the new volunteer opportunities I’ve been introduced to. This experience has had a tremendous impact on me.
The goal of Style Council is to fundraise and spread awareness on behalf of AIDS service organizations in North Texas. An average of 4200 people in Texas are diagnosed with HIV every year and 60% of new HIV diagnoses in Dallas County are people under the age of 35. The fight against HIV/AIDS is far from over!
The Style Council fundraising year ends with the House of DIFFA event and there aren’t enough words to describe the evening. Every year there is a different theme and this year was Arabesque. Think Arabian Nights meets New York Fashion Week and that pretty much describes it.
The evening started with a camel, greeting the attendees as they entered the Omni Dallas. As you walked into the ballroom, there were belly dancers and the room was dark with pops of bright colors everywhere. The night was filled with intricate dance productions and elaborate, detailed costumes. It felt like I was in a movie!
