Robin and Gerry Parsky Host “Cocktails and Conversation” for USET Foundation

Rancho Santa Fe, CA- June 8- Robin and Gerry Parsky hosted “Cocktails and Conversation” for equestrians and members of the USET Foundation at their beautiful home in Rancho Santa Fe on June 2. The cocktail party was held to discuss the USET Foundation’s exciting fundraising plans for the quadrennium of 2005-2008, which will help support and provide the funding for the U.S. Equestrian Federation High Performance Programs for the seven international disciplines of Endurance, Eventing, Dressage, Driving, Reining, Show Jumping, and Vaulting.

The party was not a fundraiser, but was an important opportunity to talk about how the USET Foundation is helping to raise money for this country’s high performance athletes and the High Performance competition and training programs for such upcoming events as the 2006 World Equestrian Games in Aachen, Germany, and the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, China.

Robin Parsky is a member of the Board of Trustees for the USET Foundation and the Executive Committee. She was also recently named as the Chairman of the USET Foundation Development Committee, which will be involved in the fundraising efforts to support equestrian athletes, promote international excellence, and build for the future.

Ms. Parsky has a vast amount of experience in equestrian sport, non-profit organizations, and philanthropy. She was a member of the organizing committee for the 1992 Volvo World Cup Show Jumping Finals in Del Mar, CA, and a member of the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Organizing Committee and official coordinator for the Olympic equestrian events. Parsky is also involved in the National Women’s Committee, the Blue Ribbon of the Music Center of Los Angeles, the American Heart Association, and many other organizations.

USET Foundation executive director Bonnie Jenkins commented, “Many thanks to Robin and Gerry Parsky for hosting such a lovely cocktail reception for the USET Foundation. Not only are they wonderful hosts, but they are also great supporters of our athletes and sport.”

The “Cocktails and Conversation” provided the opportunity for USET Foundation officials and members to talk with individuals involved and committed to supporting equestrian sport. Jenkins mentioned, “I was able to talk about the important efforts that the Foundation is involved with to make sure that the High Performance Programs of the Federation receive the support that is absolutely critical to our success at international championships.”

She also added, “We cannot wait until the year of a major championship to raise funds. We need to make sure the funding is in place at the beginning of the quadrennium so that the proper international and training programs can be planned and implemented by our coaches for the years leading up to the Olympic Games. It is also important that we ensure that international competition opportunities exist for our up and coming riders, so that we are bringing along the next generation of talented horses and riders that will represent this country in the future.”

Some of the guests at the meeting included: USET Foundation executive director Bonnie Jenkins, Robin and Gerry Parsky, Bob and Pam Buie, Rene and Mark Couto, Jay and Gwendolyn Meyer, Nick and Kathy Connor, Dave and Kathy Colmar, Georgia and Ron Spogli, Herb and Shari Lurie, Patty Applegate, Marsha Hesteer, and Linda Starkman Burke.
