Thousands of lights are sparkling, the Bear Hotel is decked out to its fullest, the band is playing your favorite song, your tastebuds are deliciously sated, you ask for another glass of wine.… The excitement is building … until, at last … the auctioneer steps onto the stage and cries, “Welcome to the Rogue Winterfest Live Auction!”
