Annual Auction

This years Auction will be held in Ayers Hall again.

Our June Auction is the major fund-raiser for SGVOH.  It is also a place that we can all find great plants at great prices, have fun, and learn about orchids.

Sound good? Sure it does! Help make the evening a success for SGVOH . Bring those great duplicate plants that you have (you will make room for some new ones from the Auction and get a tax deduction to boot!!).

Please arrive early; logging incoming plants and supplies begins at 5:30 PM. You want time to register for a paddle and to pick out your favorite plants to bid on before the auction starts promptly at 7 PM.

We are lucky again this year to have Peter Lin as our Auctioneer.  Peter is a superior auctioneer and he is a AOS Judge.  This means plenty of know-how and plenty of fun.

What about plants?  Our Board members are busy scurrying all over Southern California to collect up plants and supplies donated by our generous supporting vendors. Some plants are being shipped in from various parts of the country. We also have gift certificates, software and AOS membership donated by various growers and companies. It is a very rich selection of items.

You know you can’t resist! Come with your friends, your cash and your check book (credit cards will NOT be accepted)! And clear out that trunk of your car – you will need the space to take your bargains home. Also bring along boxes, as they are most useful in keeping your plants upright in your car.

Come early, stay alert, and get ready to have some fun.
