Build It And They Will Come

I have found my work with the Steering committee for San Francisco’s Dining by Design to be quite rewarding. The two-day event benefits The Positive Health Program at San Francisco General Hospital which provides on-demand treatment to those living with HIV and AIDS.

Our committee is always looking for ways to promote the event, so I was happy to have been able to collaborate with Mr. Robert Van De Weile, the newly appointed showroom manager at Lee Jofa on a table setting in his showroom to promote Dining by Design’s “Table Hop & Taste”.

A special thanks must be given to Christie McRae, one of our event’s co-chairs and the owner of the McRae & Co. showroom and MC2. She provided the china and stemware from her personal collection.

The tablecloth is one that Barbara and I used on our first table at Dining by Design in 2005. The new line of fabrics from Oscar De La Renta was used to accent the table with memo samples as napkins. The setting is finished off with leaves from the Liquid Amber tree in front of my home.

Our hope is that this will inspire ticket sales, and if you are in San Francisco this coming week (Wednesday) please attend this wonderful, creative event for a great cause! Tickets can be purchased here.
