2011 OSGKC Annual Spring Auction

Please remember to attend our annual fundraiser the SPRING ORCHID AUCTION, this Sunday April 10 from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Check out the website or blog to see the many great orchids, many in bud or bloom, donated by fabulous orchid vendors. All registered bidders will be placed in a drawing to win a fabulous blooming orchid at the end of the auction (must be present to win). Each member’s attendance is important to the success of this event. Please take personal responsibility to let friends, family, coworkers, neighbors , etc. know about the auction. Send them an email or social network invitation so we can have an awesome turnout!

Members can still make donations of healthy plants and orchid-related items. It would be helpful if you can send me an email in advance with some basic info so I can plan accordingly. Members should bring donated plants between 1 to 1:20 pm for setup and viewing.

Thanks so much and see you and your friends on Sunday.  Monica McNamara, Chair of 2011 OSGKC Annual Spring Auction
