Ellen performed in Santa Rosa to open her HERE AND NOW tour over 20 years ago, and we were all thrilled to be back for three shows this week. The crowds were incredible, and it was amazing to be able to show off my emcee and auctioneering skills at the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts.

I was lucky to be able to open for Ellen for 17 years in Los Angeles, and now my skillset has brought me to serve as the charity auctioneer for non-profits all around the country.

But there is nothing like going home, and being able to support Ellen on her final comedy tour. Sonoma County, we loved hanging out with you all…and bonus, I got to visit with two of my sisters!
