In case you missed it, Steeplechase for the Arts on November 1st was a great success! Hundreds of people gathered at Pine Mountain, GA to show their love and support for 6 of their favorite art organizations in and around Columbus, Georgia! The beneficiaries consisted of:
The Columbus Museum
The Columbus Symphony Orchestra
Historic Columbus Foundation
Ida Cason Callaway Foundation
The Springer Opera House
Although there was a lot of push and chaos leading up to race day in hopes to gain supporters and fans, race day was about so much more. People simply enjoyed coming together just to celebrate the culture and arts that exists in our community! Along with the Steeplechase races throughout the day, there was a number of other activities going on fulfilling the interest of all ages!
Here are 5 reasons why we enjoyed Steeplechase for the Arts on Race Day!
1. A good excuse to wear a fun hat!
Southern Views Magazine was the judge of the hat contest with categories consisting of Most Whimsical, Most Beautiful, & Best Children’s Hat.
2. There were plenty of activities to keep children occupied and having fun!
Carmike Kids Corral provided inflatables, a rock climbing wall, cotton candy, arts, crafts, and so much more!
3. The races were accompanied by unique entertainment throughout the day!
4. Horses weren’t the only animals present on race day!
5. And of course the decor inside the Guarantor Tent!
The Guarantor Tent provided a lunch for those who purchased a seat/table inside the tent and a wonderful team put together all the decor that was on display! The best part was, everything was for sale! All of the proceeds from the sales for the items inside the tent went towards the funds being raised for Steeplechase and given to the beneficiaries.
