Boston’s most generous philanthropists and park supporters will be in full force at the 2015 Party in the Park, widely considered the city’s “Must Attend Fundraiser.” Over 700 ladies (and a few brave gents, including Governor Charlie
Baker and Boston Mayor Marty Walsh) mingle over champagne and lunch wearing their finest millinery. From picture hats and fascinators to cloches and pillboxes, every conceivable type of headgear will be on display under a tent on the
banks of Jamaica Pond to raise money for the Emerald Necklace Conservancy. To date, the luncheon has generated over $5M for special restoration projects in the park system that benefits all of Boston.
A non-profit founded in 1998, the Emerald Necklace Conservancy protects, restores, maintains and promotes the 1,100 acres of meadows, woodlands and paths of the Frederick Law Olmsted-designed Emerald Necklace park system that serves as a respite from the city for 1 million citizens and tourists each year.
