“This is the first Tiff’s Treats in The Woodlands, and the excitement about our arrival by this great area of Houston has been overwhelming,” co-founder Leon Chen said. “We truly feel we already have great loyal supportive customers in The Woodlands before we even open our doors.”

The new store will host a grand opening fundraiser, during which customers can purchase up to six batches of a dozen cookies for $5. Proceeds up to $5,000 will be donated to The Connor Man Foundation, which is dedicated to researching the rare and inoperable early childhood brain tumor Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Giloma, or DIPG.

Customers attending the grand opening may also bring a new, unwrapped toy to be donated to children being treated at MD Anderson in exchange for a $5 Tiff’s Treats gift card. Fozzy Whittaker, former Texas Longhorn and current Carolina Panthers player, will be in attendance to sign autographs from 9-10:30 a.m. For more information, visit www.cookiedelivery.com/Company/Grand-Opening-The-Woodlands.aspx.
