What started in 2007 as two people randomly handing out cookies to people waiting in lines has become a force for good! The Brigadiers bake cookies and bring them to PAX, where they distribute their tasty goodies and accept donations to Child's Play. In the past 5 years they’ve raised more than $93,000!

Description

Cookie Brigadiers distribute cookies in conjunction with PAX and run other charity events during the year. Cookie distribution occurs before, during and after PAX until they run out of cookies.

Brigadiers collect donations on behalf of Child's Play, a nonprofit organization that gives toys and games to kids in Children’s Hospitals around the world. Watch this informative video to learn more about what Child's Play does for kids!

Finding a Cookie Brigade Member

Cookie Brigade members who partipate in the PAX fundraisers can be found walking through lines, passing by in halls, and greeting you as you play with offers of delicious baked goods! Look for people wearing an official Cookie Brigade brigadier patch!
