Rain Didn’t Dampen the Spirits of Success Won’t Wait Volunteers at Point-to-Point 2009

Success Won’t Wait gave away hundreds of books to attendees who were enthusiastic, despite the rain!

Although the heavens opened up and the sky stayed gray, the mood was bright inside the Success Won’t Wait tent at the annual Point-to-Point steeplechase held at Winterthur Museum and Gardens. In addition to exciting races over the museum’s extensive grounds, attendees watched a breathtaking antique carriage parade, ate fabulous food, and got to show off their Ascot-worthy hats (a Point-to-Point tradition).

Success Won’t Wait volunteers used this opportunity to give away hundreds of books to children attending the event. The books, donated by Pony Book Club, were a huge hit! Other merchandise donated by Pony Book Club — like saddle shaped keychains, books on tape, pony stickers and more — were given away at various stations throughout the venue.

Planning is already started for 2010, minus the rain!
