Whenever people gather bonsai, besides learning is not always fun. This is one of those stories.
The 2010 Bonsai Societies of Florida meet was held in Orlando, Florida.

Although there are fees, it can sometimes be difficult to meet all the expenses of hotel, speakers, plant material and construction materials.
One of the ways companies help meet these expenses is asking for donations bonsai related and them equipped for raffles.
Items such as trees, tools, books, bonsai pots and sometimes artworks provide additional revenue for the event.
