A Community Partnership Supporting Reno Phil & Reno Rodeo Foundation Programs


A collaboration made for cowboy boots and hats brings together the Reno Phil and the Reno Rodeo Foundation for a night of music and good ol’ fashioned country western entertainment.

Rhythm & Rawhide returns from hiatus Friday, May 20 at the Downtown Reno Ballroom, 401 N. Center St., Reno, Nevada, to support the community. Proceeds benefit all the programs offered by the organizations. They are committed to enriching the lives of families and children by providing scholarships, new clothing to abused children, music education and music excellence to our community.

“This event was a fan favorite for many years and the time was right to bring it back,” Tim Young, CEO for the Reno Phil, said. “It’s a time to really just have fun, enjoy some fantastic entertainment and put on cowboy boots and hats all while helping to support those that need it most in our community. What could be better than that?”

Laura Jackson, musical director and conductor, leads the Reno Phil along with featured vocalists Rachel Potter and Patrick Thomas. Enjoy favorite country western classics like Crazy, Jambalaya and The Devil Went Down to Georgia.

The evening starts off with cocktails and participatory activities at 6:00 p.m., followed by dinner, concert and more cowboy fun.

“We are excited to help bring Rhythm & Rawhide back into the community” said Clara Andriola, Reno Rodeo Foundation Executive Director. “It’s going to be a wonderful evening benefitting two organizations that do so much good in our community.  Let’s cowboy up for the kids!”

RSVP in advance by visiting online at renophil.com or renorodeofoudnation.org. Sponsorship opportunities are available starting at $2,500 and individual tickets are $250 each. Dress is rodeo or country attire.
