One of my favorite events of the year is the annual running of the Point-to-Point Steeplechase races on the spectacular grounds of Winterthur Museum and Gardens here in Delaware. For over thirty years this event has helped raise money for the museum, which houses the largest collection of American furnishings in the country!
Without question, this is one of the “see and be seen” events of the season. Ladies don colorful hats a la Ascot, tailgate picnics include champagne and caviar, and the Rolls Royce Club and carriage enthusiasts (pictured) get to strut their stuff for ecstatic crowds. (And of course, there are horse races, too!)
This is the third year that Success Won’t Wait has attended as a sponsor of the “Kids’ Corral” and the Winterthur Fun Hunt. In a nutshell, kids visit various stations all over the grounds to receive stamps on their map. When all the spots are filled, they visit the Success Won’t Wait tent to receive their choice of a beautiful horse-themed book, donated to Success Won’t Wait by PONY Book USA.
This year we gave away hundreds of children’s books and met many wonderful people who understand and support our mission! Many thanks to Jill Abbott, Race Director of the event and her incredible staff, for all of their help in the coordination of the Fun Hunt!
