The 9th Annual Tucson Orchid Dinner
Greetings to All Orchidians, Metalsmiths, Jewelers and Gem Enthusiasts!
Once again, the Tucson Gem Show is approaching quickly, and we look
forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones. This year is
especially exciting as we have a new venue for the Orchid Dinner and
Located in Tucson’s historic “Trail Dust” section, The Savoy Opera
House 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.
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! Also returning is Hanuman and his assistant
Ton, who travel all the way from Bangkok, Thailand.
New for 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.

Orchid Silent Auction
Each year, a Silent Auction is held to help raise funds to maintain
the high costs of Ganoksins which houses thousands of technical
protocols, video, Bench Tips, Galleries and the Orchid Archives.
Each year, great donations result in lively and active bidding! At
our last event, donations included a Bonny Doon Hydraulic Press,
workshop tuitions and the full collection of the Orchid Pins, plus
much, much more. There is fast and furious bidding among
participants, so don’t miss out!
If you would like to donate to the Silent Auction, here’s a great
opportunity to clear out your studio of those odds-and-ends, and
help support Orchid at the same time!
