“We invite San Diegans to join us for the 43rd Annual Awards Ceremony and find out which projects will take home an Orchid or an Onion!” said Rachel Morel, Orchids & Onions Communications Director and PGAL Senior Associate. “We could not do it without the support of our amazing sponsors, volunteers, jurors and the community.”
