V’tae owner wins business award

Belinda Rush-Carville has received the Nevada City 2004 Business Person of the Year award for her volunteer work promoting business in the Seven Hills Business District.

Rush-Carville, owner of V’tae Parfum and Body Care on Searls Avenue, received the award Saturday at the Nevada City Chamber of Commerce’s 103th installation ceremony and community awards dinner.

“We looked at a number of nominees,” said Ben Barretta, one of two representatives of the Nevada City Rotary Club on the selection committee. “She just rose to the top.”

She was cited for her volunteer work on behalf of the Chamber, particularly her promotion of landscaping and the installation of gas lights in the Seven Hills area. The award is presented by Rotary and the Chamber.

“It was a complete surprise,” Rush-Carville said Monday. “I’m still stunned. It’s really a honor.”

A fifth-generation native of Nevada County, she has operated V’tae for 15 years. Along with other members of her family, she owns the South Yuba Club and is involved in development of Loma Rica Ranch.
