A UTPA student tries his hand at Turkey Bowling, an annual event sponsored by the Student Union at UTPA to raise funds for the Adopt-an-Angel Program. During Turkey Bowling, held Nov. 9, members of the campus community paid a $1 per person to have a chance to throw the frozen bird into two- liter bottles of soda, hoping to take home the ones they knock down. The Adopt-an-Angel Program, now in its 16th year, helps UT Pan Am students who have children and are receiving financial aid to provide Christmas gifts for their family. The families are also able to enjoy a holiday celebration Dec. 19 featuring food and games. Adopt-an-Angel is sponsored by the Office of Student Life and Transition Services. The deadline for applications from students is Nov. 19. Persons wanting to contribute to Adopt-an-Angel or obtain more information can call Dolores Villarreal at (956) 665-7244.
