One of our 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 worthy of Ascot, tailgate picnics include champagne and caviar, and the Rolls Royce Club and carriage enthusiasts get to strut their stuff for ecstatic crowds. (Of course, there are horse races, too!)
This is the fifth year that Success Won’t Wait has attended as a sponsor of the kids’ Winterthur Hunt. In a nutshell, kids visit various stations all over the museum grounds to enjoy fun activities like pony grooming, leading a pony through an obstacle course, and navigating a hay maze, plus they receive great prizes! For example, when they visit the Success Won’t Wait tent they will receive their choice of a beautiful age-appropriate children’s book, generously donated to Success Won’t Wait by Scholastic!
Each year we give away hundreds of children’s books and meet 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 Winterthur Hunt!
