annual orchid auction
Once a year, usually in May or June, OSSC hosts an auction of high-quality
orchids. This is the main fund-raising event for the society, and proceeds from
this event are vital to the continued operation of Southern California's oldest
2013 ossc annual auction
This year, hundreds of beautiful orchids will be available for sale at
OSSC's Annual Orchid Auction. The auction will be held on Saturday,
June 15, 2013 starting at 2:00PM at our
usual meeting site in the meeting hall of
the First Christian Church, 221 South Sixth Street, Burbank, California.
Doors will open at 1:00PM for plant inspection and bidder registration;
plant donations will be accepted after 12:30PM. The bidding should be over
by 5:00PM. A wide range of orchids will be available, with well-grown
varieties of species and hybrids suitable for everyone from the orchid
novice through the advanced collector. Door prizes and refreshments will be
offered, and admission is free to all. Feel free to bring your friends and
We are again privileged to have TWO fully accredited AOS
Judges, Doug Overstreet and Peter Lin to
conduct the auction. Their encyclopedic knowledge of orchids and lively
banter always adds to the auction experience.

full color and the
other black and white. You will
