Mark Fuente, president of Spanish Jack’s, Barbara Fuente, vice president, and Melissa M. Struttmann of the Creek County Literacy Program with products from the fundraising line.
“Do you know any cooking or grilling foodies, or don’t know what to get for the guy who has it all? Spanish Jack’s makes the perfect gift!” shares Barbara Fuente, vice president of Spanish Jack’s Fine Foods, a Sapulpa-based business.
Spanish Jack’s has hand selected three items for a winter holiday fundraiser – grilling and marinade sauces priced at just $10 a jar. They are the perfect stocking stuffer for everyone on your Christmas list.
Between now and December 19, Spanish Jack’s will donate 50 percent of fundraising sales from their Winter Product Line to the Creek County Literacy Program. These three promotional products include:
Cranberry Grilling Sauce & Marinade: Marinate chicken, pork or beef 12 to 24 hours. Liberally baste meat during cooking and after removing from the grill or oven, or serve right on the table. Sweet and spicy!
Coffee or Mustard Flavor Based Barbeque Sauce: Coffee perfectly complements chicken and beef, while mustard pairs perfectly with pork/ham. Be sure to have some extra ready for dipping!
“Every jar is locally produced right here in Creek County. Log onto www.spanishjacks.com to download dozens of free recipes for these – and all the Spanish Jack’s products,” suggests Barbara.
“Your family and friends will love it,” adds Mark Fuente, president of Spanish Jack’s, “and you can feel good knowing that you’ve helped support literacy in our community.”
“Seventeen percent of adults in Creek County 18 years or older do not have a high school diploma, and four percent of adults in Creek County 18 years or older do not have a 9th grade education. More than 400,000 Oklahoma adults are functionally illiterate. The mission of the Creek County Literacy Program is to encourage, educate and equip aspiring readers to overcome the barriers of illiteracy,” adds Melissa M. Struttmann, executive director of Creek County Literacy Program.
These Spanish Jack’s Products are available at the Creek County Literacy Program office, 15 N. Poplar St. in Sapulpa, and can be purchased directly using cash, check or credit card (make checks payable to Creek County Literacy Program). Call (918) 224-9647 or email orders ahead to eat0@eau0eav0eaw0.
