The Dunes Center was again honored this year as the benefactor for the Central Coast Orchid Show hosted by the Five Cities Orchid Society. Friday night, Dunes Center supporters and orchid enthusiasts join to get the first look of the orchid show and raise money for the Dunes Center. Preview benefit attendees were welcomed by Moses and his sphinx as they walked into the Hollywood inspired evening. An enticing silent auction and delicious food made the night a glowing success.
The Friday night benefit kicked off a wonderful weekend of sharing the Dunes Center’s programs and community events with Orchid Show-goers. The Dunes Center reached over a thousand people over the course of the weekend, making the event a huge success for the organization.
The Dunes Center would like to thank the many generous donors and volunteers for helping coordinate the event, as well as the Five Cities Orchid Society! We are also grateful for the coverage provided by The Santa Maria Times and Dave Hovde at KSBY.
Below are some of the many wonderful donors who join us at the Preview Benefit and posed with our Moses and his sphinx from the 1923 film, The Ten Commandments.
