Those sorority alumnae really know how to raise funds for their local beneficiaries. The Kappa Kappa Gammas are getting folks ready for holiday feasting with their two-day Tablescapes Monday, October 14, and Tuesday, October 15, at the Dallas Country Club. The Kappa Alpha Thetas are game-on with their Bingo Night at Brook Hollow Golf Club on Wednesday, October 30. And for the 12th year, the Dallas Tri Delta Alumnae are hosting 12th Annual Cookies and Castles at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital Children for its Prosthetic department with a delicious plan to surpass their goal.
Plans call for this year’s December fundraiser to provide TSRHC more than their $150,000 goal bringing the total of giving back over the past 12 years to a whopping $650,000.
On Friday, December 13, from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. there will be a Ladies Luncheon with the guests lunching and decorating their gingerbread castles and gingerbread men to take home “as a treasured tradition.” KXAS-NBC’s Katy Blakey will emcee a presentation by a TSRHC patient.
The following day will be The Family Day with two seatings — 10 a.m. to noon and 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. — “in a fun-filled, candy wonderland.” Like the name indicates, it’s open for kids and parents to “enjoy decorating beautiful gingerbread castles” complete with Saint Nick available for photos and chats. And, of course, the guests will leave with the little castles just in time for the holidays. This year they’ve even made available private party suites.
According to Cookies and Castles Co-Chairs Katie Broussard and Laurel Looney, “For over a decade, Dallas Tri Delta Alumnae has had so much fun hosting this event benefiting the Prosthetics department at Scottish Rite Hospital. We are committed to help fulfill the hospital’s mission of giving children back their normal childhood. We would not be successful without all of our generous sponsors especially our premier sponsor, the DFW Acura Dealers and Vandergriff Acura.”
