The Art of Giving
Fiery, outspoken, and passionate about her projects are good descriptions of Boulder City Art Guild member, Rose Ann Miele. Rose Ann and her husband Mike moved to Boulder City in 1995 and they immediately became involved with many of the philanthropic organizations within the City.
|Mike’s talent for professionally rendered “Sinatra type” songs was immediately recognized by the community. In 1996 Dotty Conner asked Mike to present a concert for the benefit of the BC Arts Council. Always ready to help out, Mike has performed for numerous occasions in Boulder City since that time. In 2007 Mike put on the first concert in the BC Library amphitheater which brought in around $2,000 for the Art Center.
|In 2000 Rose Ann took on the job of Director of the Boulder City Hospital Foundation and organized Art in the Park, the largest festival of its kind in Southern Nevada.
Rose Ann became the Public Information Officer for the City of Boulder City in 2001. As part of the job, she ran the BCTV cameras filming public events, City Council meetings and interviewing community personalities.
She has volunteered for many years as an MC and has served as Chairperson for the Boulder City Art Guild’s Spring Fine Arts Festival for three years.

|The Mieles’ present projects include working for Family Promise, a group that helps homeless families get organized so that they may support themselves. The group helps to get jobs, homes and clothing for the families and councils them on how to use their income so that they may remain self-sufficient. Rose Ann claims they have an 80% success rate.
Another of their commitments is St. Christopher’s Emergency Aid with its Cardboard City.
If you see Rose Ann, ask her about all her activities. She will say, “I retire in December, giving me more time for all these projects.”
Rose Ann and Mike Miele really do know about the Art of Giving.
