2020 Orchids & Onions Gala

Thursday, October 1, 2020, 6:30 P.M. PDT

The 44th annual Orchids & Onions Awards Gala will be a virtual event, held on October 1, 2020 at 6:30pm. This year we may not be gathering in person, but through technology we can celebrate together nonetheless. SDAF is partnering with Every.org to bring the 2020 Orchids and Onions gala to you

This year, host Marti Krane will lead us in celebrating the good and calling out the bad. In partnership with SD-NOMA, we will raise funds to create a scholarship for a local architecture student of color. And for the first time ever, we will vote for the People’s Choice award orchid and onion during the ceremony, with the winners announced at the end of the night.
