This year, we are only allowing orchids and orchid supplies to be auctioned.†† Sorry no succulents, house plants or other goodies.† All plants will be registered as silent auction and we will pick plants out for live auction.†† Each society will keep 20% of the plantís sale price of their memberís plants and the rest will be sent to the seller after the auction.†† All purchased items will need to be paid for at the end of the auction via cash or check.


The societies will provide the main dish, drinks and supplies.† Please bring a salad or dessert to share.
