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 2020 as our 20th year of “Cookies and Castles: a Gingerbread Extravaganza.” The event has now grown to include six 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 it’s inception, Cookies & Castles has donated over $909,713 to Cook Children's. Cookies & Castles also benefits the Jean Wiggin Roach Scholarship Fund, which provides financial assistance to outstanding TCU women each year.
