yummy tamales at Viva Tamales! fundraiser
Today was the first ever ¡Viva Tamales! event, raising funds for the pregnancy education program at La Clinica de la Raza, which has been providing affordable healthcare in Oakland and the East Bay for over 40 years.
Lots of people turned out and were having a great time. I only tasted the non-meat tamales, but everything I tried was great. I haven't heard the official winner, or how much was raised, but the event seemed like it was a huge success.
Thanks to Tina Tamale for hosting the event, to all the competitors, to Tim and Chris for creating La Borinqueña's new garden and to everyone who came out to support the event.
Lots more pictures from today's event:
