MonsignoreDIFFA Party at the MansionSeattle, WA — Last night, I went to the Rainier Club for DIFFA Seattle‘s 3rd Annual Party at the Mansion with my favorite socialite, Anamaria.

The Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS (DIFFA) is one of the largest grantors of HIV/AIDS service and education program funding in the U.S. Since it’s inception in 1993, DIFFA’s Seattle chapter has granted nearly half a million dollars to local HIV/AIDS service organizations.

DIFFA sponsored parties are among Seattle’s hottest charitable events and the one at the Rainier Club is one of my personal favorites. This was the second time I’ve been able to attend with Anamaria. The cocktails flowed, the hors d’oeuvres were past and we had even more fun than the first time.

YouthAid Seattle AIDSSeattle, WA — A couple months ago, a local artist, photographer and friend, Artana of famed Shot in the Dark Photography asked if I would be interested in doing a charity shoot and I jumped on the idea. Artana and Carol McNeilly worked with me, my boy Christopher and ten other stunning men from the Seattle area. The results, a 2008 calendar and other merchandize, can be found at www.aidforseattleaids.com through Café Press.

The photography is beautiful and it’s for a good cause. All proceeds from the calendars, mugs, note cards and limited edition prints will go to benefit local and national AIDS foundations. My favorites are: the cover, my boy Christopher’s torso; Mr October, a better look at him; and yours truly, Mr December.
