Tamale Time!

posted Sep 15, 2016, 12:32 PM by PTA President   [ updated Oct 4, 2016, 10:41 AM ]

Sam Hughes PTA has partnered with Tucson Tamale for a tasty fall fundraiser. Tucson Tamale has been voted the best in Tucson 7 years in a row! Their handcrafted tamales are made with organic non-GMO corn and non-GMO oil. Tucson Tamale is a locally owned, neighborhood business. 40% of each order will benefit Sam Hughes.  Buy them for yourselves, your friends, your family members. Sell them to your neighbors and co-workers. Who doesn't need some delicious tamales in the freezer as we approach the holiday season?

Tamale sales will continue through Friday, October 21!
