Each year, folks from all over the East Coast look forward to the Winterthur Point-to-Point Steeplechase. The event annually draws a crowd of almost 30,000, eager to see the thrilling horse races, the collection of vintage Rolls Royce automobiles, and the stunning traditional carriage parade, all while hosting tailgate parties that would make Martha Stewart proud.
At Back to Basics, we love the pageantry of Point-to-Point, too. But, we also look forward to the fun-filled event for another reason — the Kids’ Fun Hunt! This is our opportunity to share information about our longtime partnership with Success Won’t Wait, the Delaware-based literacy non-profit, and our shared mission to eradicate illiteracy.
So, we give away hundreds of brand new children’s books at the event every year.
Together, our two organizations worked hard to make this year’s event a huge success. And, despite the rain, our volunteers gave away over 600 children’s books and made dozens of contacts for upcoming events and book donations!
