Orchid interactions. Join us today for the 12th Annual Tucson Orchid
Dinner:

Several major trade events in the US provide occasions when Orchid
members meet outside the virtual world. Members of the Orchid Forum
gather together for dinner, allowing an opportunity to put together
names and faces.

An Orchid Event helps all of us in dispersing about
Ganoksin and its vast resources. Additionally, the group mind of
Orchid comes together to strengthen our community and share in
common experiences.

Attending an Orchid Dinner is your time to interact with other
Orchidians, relax after a long day and an opportunity to meet people
from trade publications and suppliers. Every year the Orchid Dinner
grows in popularity and is fast becoming the “must attend event” for
gem show enthusiasts!

The Savoy Opera House, Located in Tucson’s historic "Trail Dust"
section, is a complete recreation of authentic, turn-of-the-century
charm based on the famous Savoy Hotel in London. Enter the Savoy
Opera House through the intricate wood and beveled-glass, French
doors imported from the original hotel and bask in the light of
elegant Victorian chandeliers, traditional opera boxes, antique
back-bars and pressed tin ceilings.

Please find couple of hours during the show rush, to attend the
dinner, to have a relaxed evening and to make new friends.

Returning this year is “Orchid Shares”, a special table set aside for
postcards, brochures and catalogs. If you have to share,
please bring it with you to the Dinner.

I am looking forward to see you at the dinner!

Orchid Silent Auction

Each year a silent auction is held at the Tucson Orchid Dinner to
raise funds to help maintain the high costs of Ganoksin’s servers
Titania and Soi11. These servers house thousands of technical
protocols, video, Bench Tips, Galleries and the Orchid Archives.

Members of the Orchid community make great donations to this very
worthwhile annual event. The silent auction creates a lively
interaction between orchid members with furious bidding among
participants as well as raises money. Donations come from “newbies to
giants” in the jewelry profession, as well as companies of all sizes.
Both new and used items are acceptable. Here’s a great opportunity to
clear out your studio of those odd-and-ends, and help support Orchid
at the same time.

Orchid Silent Auction

Each year a silent auction is held at the Tucson Orchid Dinner to
raise funds to help maintain the high costs of Ganoksin’s servers
Titania and Soi11. These servers house thousands of technical
protocols, video, Bench Tips, Galleries and the Orchid Archives.

Members of the Orchid community make great donations to this very
worthwhile annual event. The silent auction creates a lively
interaction between orchid members with furious bidding among
participants as well as raises money. Donations come from “newbies to
giants” in the jewelry profession, as well as companies of all sizes.
Both new and used items are acceptable. Here’s a great opportunity to
clear out your studio of those odd-and-ends, and help support Orchid
at the same time.
