This year’s theme, House of DIFFA: Circo Rouge, presented by Headington Companies along with its retailers and The Joule Hotel, is unveiling a circus wonderland with unimaginable creations. Attendees can expect the unexpected this season with a theatrical production featuring surprise guests, elaborate performances, and some of the hottest fashion trends by Traffic LA, TenOverSix, & Forty Five Ten. The event will take place on Saturday, May 21st at the Omni Dallas Hotel and promises to be an unforgettable experience one can only see to believe. "This year, we aim to increase fundraising efforts while embracing the beauty of life as we continue to provide hope and strength to all those living with HIV” says Clint Bradley, House of DIFFA: Circo Rouge Chairman. Undeniably the hottest fashion show ticket in town, House of DIFFA is consistently a sold-out event year over year.
