The Fort Worth Delta Delta Delta Alumnae Chapter started the first ever Cookies & Castles in 2001. This Gingerbread Decorating Extravaganza has become a holiday tradition cherished by many in Fort Worth. Friends and families gather for fun and festivities, and the patients of Cook Children’s Medical Center are the beneficiaries.

It is with great pride that we mark 2023 as our 23rd year of “Cookies and Castles: a Gingerbread Extravaganza.” The event has now grown to include four different events in Fort Worth, and has also expanded to other cities! 

Proceeds from Cookies & Castles go directly to Children's Cancer Charities in the Hematology Oncology Unit at Cook Children's Medical Center. Since its inception, Cookies & Castles has donated over $1M to Cook Children's. Cookies & Castles also benefits the Jean Wiggin Roach Scholarship Fund, which provides financial assistance to outstanding TCU women each year.
