Hi All, If you’ve not yet confirmed for the SoCal Orchid Dinner,
which will take place on November 1 in Santa Monica, it’s not too
late! Check the SoCal Orchid Dinner Information page for all the
details (maps, times, what to pay and how to pay it, etc.):
Also, Brad has now mounted a SoCal Orchid Dinner Silent Auction web
page (http://www.gembiz.com/auction/) where you can read about all
the items donated to help raise funds for Orchid. There are new
additions to the site frequently so check back every couple of days.
Since last weeks update, we’ve added two great auction items:
Jewelry photographer Barry Blau has donated his services to shoot
three jury-quality images, a value of $275 dollars. Check the
Auction site for details and thank you Barry! To see examples of
Barry’s great work, take a look at his website:
Our own David Barzilay of “Lord of the Rings” is donating an
opalized clam shell. Thank you David! A picture will be posted at
the Auction site as soon as it’s available and I’m sure all the
opalholics out there (myself included) will be waiting for this one.
We are still looking for additional donations for the Silent
Auction. If you are willing to donate an item or services valued at
$100 or more, please get in touch ASAP.
As always, if you have any questions, contact Beth at
<@Beth_Rosengard> or Brad at email@example.com.
Beth Rosengard & Brad Smith
