House of DIFFA Las Vegas presents Eden

This elite, high-fashion and sensually entertaining spectacular tells the story of love, lust and temptation in Las Vegas.


House of DIFFA Las Vegas is an elite fashion event tailored to an exclusive audience. As the preeminent showcase of high design, this national HIV/AIDS event benefits local nonprofits right here in Las Vegas, while converging the worlds of live performance art, music and philanthropy.

Who We Are

One of the largest and most successful fundraising organizations aiding HIV/AIDS, Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS (DIFFA) is a non-profit service provider with chapters in Dallas, New York City, Chicago, Kansas City, San Francisco and Seattle. Since its establishment in 1984, DIFFA has granted, through its various chapters, more than $41 million to more than a hundred front-line HIV/AIDS service organizations nationally, providing direct care to those living with or affected by HIV/AIDS.

House of DIFFA is bringing its highly regarded and exclusive annual event from Dallas to Las Vegas to benefit local organizations that support the LGBTQ and HIV/AIDS communities. Through DIFFA Las Vegas partnership with Style Fashion Week, an internationally recognized organization, and the Las Vegas Fashion Council, this highly visible event will bring the spotlight to Las Vegas’ growing fashion industry.
House of DIFFA Las Vegas takes its inspiration from the 28-year-old event hosted by DIFFA Dallas annually. The above video from the 25th annual House of DIFFA event will give you an idea of the extravagant, eclectic and electrifying evening a House of DIFFA event can bring!

Las Vegas Beneficiaries

This unique event will bring together two of Las Vegas’ most beloved charities that serve those both infected and affected by HIV/AIDS: AIDS Healthcare Foundation, The Center, Golden Rainbow, Huntridge Family Clinic and The Sin City Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. Plus, Las Vegas Fashion Council will benefit from a portion of the silent auction.

DIFFA Las Vegas / House of DIFFA Las Vegas has partnered with The Las Vegas Fashion Council to provide a creative outlet for fashion design students through the event’s silent auction. One-of-a-kind items are created by students and then auctioned off during the event. All proceeds from this endeavor benefit The Las Vegas Fashion Council scholarship program for local fashion design students.
