Success Won’t Wait volunteers hand out hundreds of books at the Winterthur Point-to-Point Steeplechase Kids’ Fun Hunt

This weekend was our favorite annual event — the Winterthur Museum and Gardens Point-to-Point Steeplechase! Every year, Success Won’t Wait volunteers hand out hundreds of children’s books to kids “on the hunt!”

PONY USA Book Club provides thousands of beautiful, brand new books to Success Won’t Wait each year, many of which are given away during this horse-themed event!

Both Ashley and Vincenza have received Daily Points of Light Awards for their amazing volunteer efforts. We certainly think they are some of our brightest shining stars!

The event hosted over 12,000 attendees, many of whom found their way to the Success Won’t Wait booth to receive a free children’s book!

Many thanks to all the volunteers who helped make this event a success!
