Annual Bonsai Auction

2022 Annual GNOBS Auction Date and Time to be announced

Now is the time to go through that overcrowded bench and decide which of your trees should go to the auction for a new home. All donations contribute to the operating budget of the club and we hope to bring you even better programs next year. Besides, you’ll need the space for the fabulous new bonsai that you just can’t live without and bring home from the auction.

Auction Setup and Donations Accepted – 12 Noon – 4:00pm
Viewing of trees and other auction items – 4:00pm – 6:00pm
Auction – 6:00pm – 9:00pm

The success of the GNOBS Auction can be attributed to the generous donations of its members and local businesses.  If you have any bonsai material from pre-bonsai stock to well styled trees or anything bonsai related, contact any of the GNOBS board members to make arrangements for your donation. GNOBS members will be available from 12 noon through the start of the auction to accept donations at the Marine Corp League Hall. Thank you for anything you can donate!
