John Rufenacht Table Design for Dining By Design 2010
In 2010 DIFFA (Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS) of Kansas City celebrated its 20th Anniversary of Dining By Design. This was an extremely meaningful and proud moment for me as the founder of D B D.
For the 20th anniversary event I created the Table of Friends – In Honor Of and In Memory Of Friends who have supported the fight against this disease and the friends who have passed and given their lives because of this disease. Four thousand cards; some with photos, some with short words of care and many with just names where hung from red ribbons to make the Chandelier of Care which rose above the simple white table. Forty guest honored those listed by becoming benefactors for the Table of Friends. Thank You to the many volunteers who made this possible and for remembering your special Friends
