The Gala Preview Night is an occasion that is not to be missed!

The event features uncrowded access to beautiful displays of orchids accompanied by good cheer, music, wine and hors d’oeuvres, plus you’ll receive a keepsake wine glass and a swag bag. Because alcoholic beverages are served, the Gala is only open to adults 21 years of age and older.

There will be wonderful silent auction items available only at the Gala. You’ll have the first access to the plant sales area, with orchids, bromeliads and tropical plants sold by vendors from all over the world.

We have a fun theme this year “Curiouser and Curiouser…Orchids in Wonderland” and the Gala is sure to be a wondrous “Mad Hatter Party”. Wear your maddest hat, and come in an Alice in Wonderland themed costume, formal wear or your favorite casual clothes.
