    SAN FRANCISCO, CA, December 18, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The San Francisco Orchid Society invites everyone to paint the town with "Orchids and All that Jazz" at its 62nd annual Pacific Orchid Exposition, happening February 20-23, 2014 at Fort Mason Center in San Francisco.

The theme of this year's event, "Orchids...and All that Jazz", combines a symphony of orchids with the complex and classic feel traditionally associated with Jazz music. Attendees can browse the intricate exhibits and displays, all which will incorporate musical creative concepts.

The Pacific Orchid Exposition is hosted by the San Francisco Orchid Society (SFOS), a 501 (c) (3) organization whose mission is to foster the culture and cultivation of orchids and to promote orchid education to its members and the public. The SFOS proudly supports local horticultural conservation efforts and for the first time ever, will donate $10 of every Gala ticket sold to both the Conservatory of Flowers and the U.C. Botanical Garden at Berkeley. These horticultural institutions make it possible for rare, exotic, and endangered species of plants to be researched, protected, and displayed for all the public to enjoy.

The event opens with the anticipated Gala Benefit Preview on Thursday, February 20th from 6:30-10:00pm. The Gala gives attendees the first chance to view and purchase some of the best orchids in the world before the show opens to the general public. Guests will also enjoy delicious gourmet hors d'oeuvres and wine tastings from some of California's premier wineries, including winners of the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, the largest competition of American wines in the world. They can bid on fabulous auction items which include gift baskets and certificates, dinners, getaways, wine, original art, and more.

The general show follows February 21-23 and boasts over 150,000 beautiful orchids from across the globe. Throughout the weekend there will be docent tours, orchid potting demonstrations and special lectures.
