Our next fundraising event is here!
Help support our Paratroopers of the 1-143IN (A) during their Christmas Holiday Dinner by baking your very best Holiday Cookies.
Texas Airborne Alliance will accept participants for the Christmas Cookie Challenge. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include in the email your name and contact information. The first 10 participants offering support VIA EMAIL will be accepted.
Christmas Cookie Challenge entrants are asked to bake approximately 200 cookies (from the same recipe) for the event. Cookies must arrive to Camp Swift no later than 2:00pm Saturday, December 8th, to allow for plating and preparation for service. Once we have our entrants, we will provide additional information on cookie drop off.
How does the challenge work?
All donated Christmas Holiday Cookies will be halved to build 'tasting plates' of cookies representing all entrants and allowing mass participation. Paratroopers will be asked to donate $5.00 minimum for a tasting plate and then they will cast votes for the top Cookie Chef of 2018!
The 2018 Texas Airborne Alliance Christmas Cookie Challenge Champion will be crowned following the 1-143IN (A) Holiday Dinner at Camp Swift, Bastrop TX. The dinner begins at 7:00pm and will run until approximately 9:00pm Saturday, December 8th.
Participants are not required to be present (we will contact you if you are the Champion!), however, you and your family are welcome to assist us with the Christmas Cookie Challenge. Please indicate that you would like to help out with this event in your email when you sign up for the challenge.
The winner of the 2018 Inaugural Alliance Christmas Cookie Challenge will be receive a $50 HEB Gift Card and a Texas Airborne Alliance Flex Fit hat from our newest production of SWAG! (Choice of Black or Grey)
Additionally, if you are not a baker, but would like to volunteer at the event anyway, please email us!
As always, we greatly appreciate your support and look forward to your delicious cookies!
