Now through the end of December, South Congress Hotel will donate $1 from every purchase of a holiday sugar cookie created uniquely for Travis Heights Elementary by the pastry chefs at Mañana. Stop by for a cup of coffee and a holiday treat while benefiting your favorite school. Be sure to let the staff know you came for the cookie and thank them for their partnership! Go early as they have been selling out fast. If you are interested in purchasing cookies by the dozen, the kitchen needs at least 72 hours notice. Please email Sophia Stout:
