NEW YORK-DIFFA: Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS will present a tribute to its board chairman David Rockwell here on Nov. 9.

The honorary event, to be held at the IAC Building, will be hosted by fellow board member Whoopi Goldberg and will bring together some of the most talented and celebrated individuals in the worlds of fashion, interior design, art and architecture.

Rockwell, a well known architect and founder of The Rockwell Group, has been involved with DIFFA since 1994, serving as a board member since 1996 and as chairman since 2000. Rockwell developed and executed several initiatives, resulting in major no-cost contributions to DIFFA. 

"We are deeply thrilled to be able to honor and thank David Rockwell," said David Sheppard, executive director of DIFFA. "David has a deep personal commitment to DIFFA and has been instrumental in raising millions of dollars over the course of his tenure, making a large impact in our organization and the fight against HIV/AIDS as a whole."
