In a city swimming with non-profits, SanTana's Latino Health Access (LHA) is perhaps the most powerful–not in connections with movers or shakers, or in a vast endowment, but in its ability to transform lives and communities with old-fashioned, Back of the Yards-style organizing. Emblematic of this grassroots organizing is LHA's annual showcase–not some fancy fundraiser but a tamalada, an old-fashioned tamale session.
It's perhaps the yummiest fundraiser in Orange County, a years-long tradition–and it's happening in two weeks. Details after the jump!
It's quite simple, actually: you can either attend the dinner, which only nets you a couple of tamales, or pre-order a dozen at $20, your choice of chicken or rajas con queso–not a bad offer considering the money goes to a worthwhile organization and maintain a good flavor even with a modified recipe for diabetics.
