Design Insider: Alpha Awards Recap

Hello Fabulistas! The IFDA NY Take a Seat Auction [link] was just one noteworthy night in the design world last week. The Alpha Awards were held last Tuesday night. This annual awards presentation is a way to honor those close to The Alpha Workshops. Alpha Workshops is one of the very special organizations. It is the nation’s only non-profit providing creative HIV-positive individuals with industry-specific training and employment in the decorative arts. This year’s honorees included Guy Clark, Shelley and Donald Rubin, and David Sheppard, Executive Director of DIFFA. There’s nothing more gratifying than helping out a great cause—and honoring those that those that commit their lives to doing good and giving back! 

 While at the awards, I ran into my friends from Artistic Tile, one of my very favorite companies, Lauren Cherkas, President, and Michael Epstein, VP of Marketing.
