Aunties Angels holiday tree

Aunties Angels and The Fish Hopper are teaming up to support Hookena and Kahakai Elementary Schools’ reading programs with an Angel Holiday Tree. The tree, set up at The Fish Hopper, has different colored angels on it — Red Angels for girl books, green for boys and yellow for teacher gifts — to take and donate an age-appropriate gift. Please take one and give the gifts of reading and encouragement to first- and second-graders this holiday season.


Botanical World Adventures honoring veterans and active military
