The annual Point-to-Point Steeplechase held on the stunning grounds of the Winterthur Museum and Gardens in Greenville, Delaware each May is one of the highlights of the event calendar for Success Won’t Wait volunteers. In addition to thrilling steeplechase races, an amazing tailgate competition, a breathtaking collection of antique Rolls Royce automobiles, and loads of must-have offerings from exclusive vendors, the day also features the Kids’ Fun Hunt.
The Kids’ Fun Hunt was instituted four years ago, as longtime attendees began bringing their children to the event. The Fun Hunt offers a “kids’ hunt map”of the venue and encourages them to visit each vendor for an activity (like a free mani-pedi, painting horse shoes, or even playing dress up with a pony!) or a lovely prize. Stamps on the Point-to-Point map show where they’ve been. And when all the stamps are filled, they can head on over to the Success Won’t Wait tent for a free children’s book by Pony Book Club!
Success Won’t Wait volunteers hand out hundreds of books each year. This year, with over 30,000 expected to attend, we might want to pack a few more!
Winterthur Point-to-Point Steeplechase will be held on May 8. Gates open at 10:30, close at 4:00. You must purchase a wristband in advance and absolutely no tickets are sold at the door.
