[Aroid-l] Ticket Offer- FTG Special Event

  • Subject: [Aroid-l] Ticket Offer- FTG Special Event

To all Floridians and/or those of you visiting the region prior to June, 2006:

Fairchild Tropical Garden has generously provided the IAS with a complimentary
pair of tickets to attend their special event: Tropical Chihuly Nights (TCN). TCN is
essentially a recurring art installation- staged every Thursday night at 6:00PM and
running from now until May 31, 2006- consisting of glass sculpture by Dale Chihuly.

Dale's work is strategically installed into the garden itself, where the organic forms
and in some cases, blatantly aroid-influenced nature of his work are set into and
juxtaposed against the tropical landscape at night. For those of you who have never
seen a Chihuly sculpture properly lit- and night time is an excellent way to set that
stage by the way- the embedded colors of each piece literally glow unlike anything
you've ever seen before.... they are absolutely surreal-!!

Ticket prices are $30 ea. for non-members/ $20 ea. for members. Further detailed
information can be found at http://www.fairchildgarden.org/Chihuly/chnights.html

So, we will be staging a Dennis Cathcart/ Tropiflora style auction for two (2) tickets
to TCN as follows:

- All interested parties are invited to email me directly at aroid@comcast.net
(please don't reply to aroid-L!) with their highest price offer for the pair. I will reply
to all submissions with a confirming email within 24 hours of receipt.

- The auction will close at 12:00PM noon, Monday 27 February, San Francisco/
Pacific Standard time (GMT - 08:00). The earliest time stamp on submitted emails will
determine the winner in case of tied bids, so don't wait too long to submit your offer-!

- Once payment has been received by IAS via Paypal (or other means), the tickets
will be immediately mailed to you from US ZIP Code 33090.

- Remember, this is just an ad-hoc fundraiser for IAS with emphasis on the F - U - N.
Use this is an excuse to vacation in South Florida during the lovely Spring weather!
Good luck and of course, please feel free to bid over face value : )

-- Dan Levin / IAS President
