Tired of scouring the mall for the perfect teacher gift? Had your fill of Chicken Soup for the Teacher’s Soul? There are only so many sappy books a person can own and appreciate, but there is one gift that keeps on giving.
Hillcrest High School’s Angel Fund supports 20 senior scholarships and is sponsored by the PTSA. You can honor a teacher, coach, administrator, or anyone else on staff by making a donation in his or her name. An acknowledgment card will be delivered to each honoree. Last year, the PTSA raised around $10,000 to award during the senior banquet in May. Deanna Williams, chair of the scholarship committee, said the Angel Fund is the perfect way to think outside of the gifting box.
“The teacher gets something a little more meaningful than another paperweight or knickknack,” Williams said.

If you’re looking for something to excite the gambler/football fanatic/philanthropist in your family, (C’mon, we all have one) look no further than Ken’s Man’s Shop. The dapper gentleman’s store is raffling off two Super Bowl tickets, complete with a game-day brunch at Fearing’s, car service, and an autographed Troy Aikman jersey. The charitable twist: Proceeds go to Scottish Rite Hospital For Children and The Bill Hunt Scholarship Fund.
Deadline: Flexible, sales will continue until 1964 tickets are sold, in honor of the year Ken’s opened up shop
