2019 Convention – Auctions
Cincinnati Celebrates Gesneriads
July 2 to July 6, 2019
The 63rd Annual Gesneriad Society Convention will be held in July 2019 in Cincinnati, Ohio. In addition to the anticipated meeting of old and new gesneriad friends, our members look forward to finding new plant introductions and plant growing supplies. The auctions are the place to find these treasures.
The Silent Auction contains horticulturally related items such as growing containers, grooming tools, and artistic supplies. You may also find rhizomes, tubers, leaves, or cuttings of unusual plants not offered in the sales area since they may be in limited supply from the donor. The Live Auction is composed of new introductions, rare plants, mature plants, and also some of the award-winning plants that some of our exhibitors are generously willing to donate to the auction at the close of the show. If you are not attending convention this year, please consider sending your donations with a friend. Prior to June 15th you may mail non-perishable donations to Mel Grice at 2019 Crosswind Court, Englewood, OH, 45322. Donation forms for those attending convention will be available in your convention confirmation packet.
Feel free to contact Betsy Gottshall with any questions. Wouldn’t it be exciting if everyone attending donated at least one item for the auction!
The proceeds from the two auctions will be going to the Nellie D. Sleeth Scholarship Endowment Fund.
