Cookies And Castles: A Sweet Way to Benefit Cook Children’s
All year long, families scattered throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex anticipate Cookies and Castles, an event held by the Fort Worth Delta Delta Delta Alumnae Chapter and benefiting Cook Children’s Medical Center.
Finally, on December 3rd, 2014, the long-awaited occasion for people of all ages began. During this event, Tri Deltas of the Phi Lambda chapter at Texas Christian University join children and their families in decorating gingerbread houses and gingerbread men.
Cookies and Castles is held at the University Christian Church by TCU in a large room filled with more candy than a child could ever imagine. Throughout the three days this holiday event occurs, there are categorized sessions in which people come and design their delicious masterpieces. The various decorating parties include all women, young children, “tweens”, and families.
The money raised through ticket sales directly benefits Cook Children’s Medical Center, where a separate Patient Decorating Party brightens up the hospital during a sweet getaway for the children at Cook’s. The Fort Worth Delta Delta Delta Alumnae Chapter and the Phi Lambda Chapter at TCU are proud to volunteer their time and effort to Cookies and Castles year after year.
Since 2001, this event has raised over $400,000 for Cook Children’s. Although the holidays have come and gone, Tri Delta already looks forward to
Cookies and Castles 2015.
