Between Horses and Humans is about to benefit from the generosity and kindness of the Wild Rose Inn and supporters old and new. The First Annual Black Tie Benefit Gala will be held this weekend at the Wild Rose Inn in Genoa, Nevada.
Dave and Jeannette Bostedt have been the owners and innkeepers of the Wild Rose Inn since February 2013. They are experts at servicing their guests’ needs in their modern Victorian Bed & Breakfast nestled at the base of the Sierra Nevada mountains. While their guests are out enjoying the beauty of the Carson Valley including golf, skiing, hiking, or soaking in mineral hot springs, Dave and Jeannette are making sure home comforts are waiting upon their return.
Jeannette’s daughter Sierra was busy pursuing her education at The Academy of Arts in San Francisco while Dave and Jeannette grew their Inn to what it is today. As business owners, Dave and Jeannette were naturally involved in their local community of Genoa, Nevada. When Sierra recently returned from San Francisco to pursue an Anthropology degree at the University of Nevada – Reno, she and Jeannette wanted to get involved in the local community together. They wanted to find a non-profit they believed in, one that touched their heart and spoke to their values. Jeannette loves the concept of leadership: she has been involved with leadership and education her whole life (she’s held senior positions in education and training in the medical device and health service industries).
After conducting their research and considering several organizations to support, the mother-daugher team discovered Between Horses and Humans (BHH) during a showcase for CASA members. They saw the BHH program’s youth working with the horses, saw Ruth and Greg’s beautiful friesians, and spoke at length with Barbara Slade, BHH President. They quickly realized their values aligned with those of BHH, and were very excited at the prospect of supporting the program.
Sierra, Jeannette and Dave subsequently attended several other BHH events including the annual fall fundraiser in October 2015. Realizing the fantastic resource they had available in the Wild Rose Inn, the family decided they wanted to contribute to the future of the program by hosting a different kind of fundraiser: one that would attract new interest. The Black Tie Benefit Gala was born.
This Saturday, May 21, 2016 at 6pm the first annual Black Tie Benefit Gala for Between Horses and Humans will be held at the Wild Rose Inn, 2332 Main Street, Genoa, Nevada. Friends and family of Between Horses and Humans, The Wild Rose Inn, Jeannette and Dave Bostedt, Sierra, Ruth Page and Greg Walsh, Maddi’s Friesian Ranch, and leadership, horsemanship, lives changed, and hearts healed will gather for a cocktail hour, gourmet dinner and dancing to the sounds of Mixed Company. The evening will include fun auctions and events including a “fund a need” action, painting auction, and a unique opportunity to “unlock” and take home a wine collection.
The Benefit Gala will be an elegant, fun-filled way to support the youth of Douglas County and the surrounding area while experiencing the beauty and comfort of the Wild Rose Inn.
