One of the highlights of the rose year is the CCRS Annual Rose Auction which was held November 14th at Heritage Hall in Carlsbad. This years event was a huge success.
CCRS was honored to have the dynamic duo, Bryan Main and John Bagnasco of Garden Compass Radio as this years auctioneers. MANY THANKS to Dr. Joel Ross and John Bagnasco for the many hours of work to accomplish this BIG EVENT! This was the biggest and best auction to date.
Johns research into every single rose in the auction coupled with his vast knowledge, humor and charm resulted in an educational,interesting and fun presentation. Bryan Main dazzled everyone with his expertise as auctioneer. His wit, energy and charisma made for a lively and extremely fun evening. Joel Ross, our CCRS rose doctor, once again created the best auction to date. The laughter and fun rolled on for hours, many smiles were seen at the end of the night as cars were packed with precious rose cargo.
CCRS thanks all of the loyal volunteers who donated roses, transported roses, set up the room, the accounting group, the spotters, the people who brought delicious food and drink, those who stayed afterward to clean up. We appreciate you so very much.
