Show Award Sponsorship

Each year many members exhibit plants, arrangements, photos and gesneriad arts and crafts at the Convention Flower Show.

You can be part of this year’s Convention Flower Show, whether you attend  convention or not, by sponsoring a Convention Flower Show Award. Each Convention has a large flower show and we need your support to make awards available to the many winning exhibits that will be entered. When sponsoring an award, you will have the opportunity to indicate the individual in whose honor, or in whose memory, you are making the award. The Awards Chairperson will determine how your sponsored award will be distributed, based on the number of sponsored awards and the number of winning entries at the Show. All award donations are tax-deductible for members in the United States.

Unspecified awards are preferred and will help prevent multiple donations for single awards. Special requests will be filled on a first-come basis. If there are no eligible entries or the category’s award has already been filled, the award will be transferred to another class or section. If there are fewer eligible entries than awards, any unused award monies will be placed in the Society’s operating funds.

To Sponsor an Award

You have three options to sponsor an award.

You can sponsor an award when you register for convention, or, if you are not attending convention, you may sponsor an award online. If you prefer to make a donation by mail, you may complete the printed version of the award sponsorship form. Make checks or money orders payable, in US$ on a US bank, to The Gesneriad Society, Inc. and submit completed form with payment to:

Paul Lee, Awards Chairperson
6693 Second Line, RR #3
Fergus, ON, Canada N1M 2W4

To obtain additional information about making a donation to the Society, contact Awards Chairperson, Paul Lee at address above, or email:
