The Dallas Alumnae Chapter of Tri Delta builds on the spirit of giving and the joy of the season with its 15th annual Cookies & Castles Extravaganza. The "Gingerbread ExtravaganzaTM," which benefits Scottish Rite for Children and the Tri Delta Foundation, returns in person on December 9 and 10, 2022, for a two-day celebration after two years of to-go-only events due to COVID-19.
This family fun event allows attendees to create their personalized gingerbread creations while providing support to the remarkable mission of Scottish Rite for Children. When attendees visit Scottish Rite to decorate or pick up their gingerbread kits, they will experience holiday decorations, music, characters, Santa Claus, and more joyful festivities. This year, Tri Delta hopes to exceed $1,000,000 donated to Scottish Rite, bringing the total raised to more than $1,200,000.
"We are honored to bring our Gingerbread ExtravaganzaTM back in person for the community, bringing together friends and family to celebrate the season and raise funds for such a wonderful organization,” said Casey Thompson, 2022 Cookies & Castles Chairwoman. “As North Texans, we are proud to be home to one of the country’s leading pediatric orthopedic centers that helps children and families from around the world, and many within our community, who rely on Scottish Rite for care.”
“Cookies & Castles and the Dallas Tri Delta Alumnae deliver exactly the type of event that is needed during the holiday season,” says Stephanie Brigger, Vice President of Development at Scottish Rite for Children. “By providing a fun, festive way to celebrate the joy of the season while also providing a tangible way to give back to the community – it’s a perfect match for us, and we look forward to the event every year.”
Cookies & Castles Dallas would not be possible without the support of the volunteer committee and generous sponsors and underwriters, including the premier underwriter for five years, the DFW Acura Dealers.
