Always in style: DIFFA Dallas dishes about the 2013 Style Council ambassadors

The Dallas chapter of the Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS (DIFFA) and its supporters never fail to wow devotees with fashionable benefits that raise money for HIV/AIDS charities.

Recently supporters gathered at Dish for the 2013 Style Council announcement cocktail party. Guests such as Darin Kunz, Matt Wilkerson, Clint BradleyAnne Stodghill, Chuck Steelman and Brittanie Buchanan chatted about the Texas notables dedicated to community service and spreading awareness about the cause.

The newly inducted ambassadors include John Bobbitt, Marty Collins, Peter Dauterman, Stephen Giles, Tommy DeAlano, Deanna Dipizio-Johnson, Daniel Lewis, Malcolm Gage, Kandis Hutchinson, LeeAnne Locken, Simona Beal, Vivian Lombardi, Tom Mason, Lance Avery Morgan, James Shackelford, Troy Schiermeyer and Paige Westhoff all of whom are celebrated in the above video.

Talk of the night? The ever-so-stylish Jan Strimple is producing the DIFFA/Dallas Collection this spring. So mark your calendars for March 23, 2013, for dinner, fashion show, and silent and live auctions at the Hilton Anatole.

If you can't wait until March, you can join the cause this month, at the fourth annual Burgers & Burgundy fundraiser October 19, at the home of Anne and Steve Stodghill. The headliner is local celebrity chef — and Top Chef contestant — John Tesar. Tickets are $75-$150.
