The Honolulu Orchid Society held its annual silent auction on Wednesday, March 12, 2014 at the Lanakila Elementary School Cafeteria. More than 15 nurseries located throughout the State donated blooming and potted plants for the auction. In addition, members donated baked goods, orchid plants and other items for the auction. About 50 members and guests attended the auction. Many went home with big smiles on their faces carrying boxes of flowering orchid plants, baked goods and other merchandise. The auction was a great success thanks to the many donors who helped the Society. The photographs below were taken by Mel Waki. Click on a photo for a larger, higher resolution image.
