Pacific Orchid Expo Gala Opening

The Pacific Orchid Exposition, the largest orchid show in the United States, will open with its much anticipated Gala Benefit Preview on Thursday, February 21st from 6:30pm to 10:00pm at Fort Mason Center.

This year the Pacific Orchid Exposition celebrates the merging of eastern and western cultures.  Inspired by the Chinese Lantern Festival, the placement of vibrant lanterns represent the Eastern world's cultural traditions, which is juxtaposed with a celebration of orchids.

The evening will feature live music, delicious hors d'oeuvres, fabulous raffle prizes, an auction, and wine tasting from over 20 of northern California premier wineries, including winners from the 2013 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, the largest competition of American wines in the world.

Cost of entry includes wine glass and tastings

We have been offered a discount of $5 off the normal ticket price of $40 (plus a small processing fee).  In order to get the discount, you must purchase your ticket in advance by clicking here.  Use the code: MeetUp. Tickets at the door will be $45.

      Not too dressy but better than jeans is my guess.
