Project Details

We are thrilled to announce Housing Works’ 15th annual Design on a Dime fundraising event on from April 23-27, 2019.

Design on a Dime, founded in 2004 by Designer James Huniford, challenges interior designers to create unique room vignettes curated with donated merchandise from well-known home decor brands and artists. All merchandise in these one-of-a-kind rooms is then sold at charitable prices to design-savvy attendees.

Since its inception, the event has raised over $15 million. With two locations, Miami, and New York, Design on a Dime will bring together an estimated 100 interior designers, over 800 top home decor brands, and nearly 6,000 guests.

We currently need TONS of help on April 25th from 4:30 pm to 10:00 pm. If you're looking for something exciting and high energy, that's definitely the shift for you!


Design on a Dime 2019 benefits Housing Works' efforts to provide lifesaving services, including healthcare and housing, to New Yorkers living with and affected by HIV/AIDS and homelessness.


All participating volunteers will receive a Design on a Dime t-shirt and a 25% off discount coupon. One time use only. Valid during public sales of Design on a Dime (4/26 and 4/27) or at any one of our thrift shops until 5/31/2019.

Please feel free to share the sign up link with your friends and colleagues! Large corporate and community groups can sign up using this form, just leave a note with the name of your organization in the sign up.


A majority of the shifts will be held on-site at Metropolitan Pavilion, located at 125 W 18th St, New York, NY 10011. PLEASE NOTE: The volunteer entrance for volunteers during opening night and sale days is 110 West 19th Street
