Parkman House Event on Wednesday, November 28, 2012

Location: Parkman House, 33 Beacon St. Boston, MA

The Parkman House event is The Friends’ big fund raising event each year. This is mainly due to the $60,000 payment due the city on January 30, 2013.  This year the life of Donald V. Little will be honored. Don was Master of the Foxhounds at Myopia Hunt Club in South Hamilton, Massachusetts and was an essential help in the effort to save The Mounted Unit. Don was simply one of those people who made things happen. He founded and managed both of the current Boston Grand Prix Jumper Classic Horse Shows, was captain of polo at Myopia for eighteen years, pioneer of Centennial Farms, a successful showjumping competitor and avid pilot all in his spare time.We all miss him and are so grateful for all he did to preserve The Mounted Unit. We hope you can join us in honoring his life and many contributions to the Mounted Unit and all endeavors he undertook.

Additionally, we will be auctioning off a spectacular necklace of the Park Ranger horse Mystic. This one of a kind piece is a hand carved (antique style) reverse crystal painting of “Mystic” inspired by Equine Massage Therapist Jodie Sinclair’s photo. It is backed with Mother-of-Pearl pendant designed in 18 karat gold with diamond bail suspended on an 18 karat gold triple strand with bezelled diamonds necklace. Anonymously and generously donated, all proceeds will benefit the Boston Park Rangers Mounted Unit. The piece will be auctioned during the event but sealed bids will be accepted before November 26, 2012 via mail to the Friends of the Boston Park Rangers Mounted Unit, P.O. Box 67147, Chestnut Hill | MA 02467. Retail Value is $11,000, Reserve Value $5,500
