GE Monogram Dinner by Design is a series of fundraising dinners and cocktail parties hosted by well-known interior designers and members of the design community benefitting local charities. Established in Ontario, the popular dining fundraisers will kick off in Vancouver on Monday, September 16.

Evoke Design’s David Nicolay will produce a White on White theme
Kelly Deck will relay a “Story of Handmade”
