SFVOS Annual Orchid Auction April 2nd @ 7:00 pm

We are pleased to announce that the San Fernando Valley Orchid Society will be holding it’s annual Orchid Auction on Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014.  We were very lucky to get orchid expert, Doug Overstreet, to be our auctioneer again this year.  It will be held at our normal meeting place, the Sepulveda Garden Center.

Plan to arrive early as the doors will open at 6:45 pm so the bidders can take some time before the auction to preview the plants and mark down the  numbers of their favorites.  This is your chance to bid on good plants and raise money for the SFVOS. These funds pay for next years guest speakers and their amazing programs.

Remember the date:
Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014
Sepulveda Garden Center
16633 Magnolia Blvd.
Encino, CA 91316

Door open at 6:45 pm and the auction will begin at 7:00pm.

San Fernando Valley Orchid Society Annual Auction April 2nd

The SFVOS will be holding their annual Orchid Auction on the first Wednesday in April.    The doors open at 7:00 pm so that bidders can preview the beautiful plants before the auction starts. The bidding will start at 7:30 pm, and we will go until we run out of plants.    Refreshments will also be served.

We are very pleased to announce that Doug Overstreet has graciously agreed to be our auctioneer again this year. Doug is very knowledgeable about all orchids as as each plant comes up for bid, Doug gives us a brief description of each plant and describes the type of environment needed for that orchid to thrive.   If you haven’t seen Doug in action,  you must come and learn from his vast wealth of knowledge.

This auction is our major fundraiser for the year, some come out to help support your society.   It is a win-win situation as this is your chance to add some great orchids to your collection at bargain prices, while helping the SFVOS fund it’s various activities throughout the year. Come early to get a good seat and have enough time to check out all the orchid plants that will be put up for bid. 

The auction will be held at the Sepulveda Garden Center,  just like our regular meetings.  For the address, directions and a map, see the home page of this website.    You don’t need to be a member of the SFVOS to attend.  Guests are always welcome.     Plan to attend this great auction and bring a guest!   See you there.
