Success Won’t Wait volunteers hand out over 500 children’s books at the Winterthur Point-to-Point Steeplechase!

The annual Winterthur Point-to-Point Steeplechase was held last weekend on the stunning grounds of the Winterthur Museum and Gardens in Greenville, Delaware. Each May, this 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 Success Won’t Wait Kids’ Fun Hunt!

The Kids’ Fun Hunt was instituted five years ago by Race Director Jill Abbott, 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. The Success Won’t Wait tent features a free children’s book provided this year by Scholastic!

The event is the perfect way to publicize the Success Won’t Wait mission and introduce families to the organization. Success Won’t Wait volunteers handed out well over 500 books at the event this year!

Founded in 2002, Success Won’t Wait, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit literacy organization based in Wilmington, Delaware. Want to learn more about Success Won’t Wait’s literacy projects, how to donate used  books, or volunteer your time? Simply visit About Success Won’t Wait.
