Join us for an inspiring evening of hope in support of the Rochester Hope Lodge. We provide free lodging to cancer patients and their caregivers as they go through life saving treatment.

Meet our Auctioneer! Rod Johnson created his benefit auction company, "Johnson Auctioneering," in 2005. Since that time the company has expanded and currently conducts benefit auctions throughout the Midwest and beyond. Rod is a "Benefit Auction Specialist" (BAS), a designation given by the National Auctioneers Association to less than 1% of auctioneers throughout North America. He is a past Wisconsin and Minnesota State Champion Auctioneer and was also a finalist in the International Auctioneers Championship. Rod recently retired as the "Voice of the Minnesota Timberwolves" after serving as their announcer for 21 years, in order to devote more time to the benefit auction business.
