The 2nd Annual Thanksgiving Dinner

  • The Historic Y (map)

“Colby loved the togetherness and love that surrounds this holiday. Sadly, many people in the community do not have a place to go where they can celebrate and simply be themselves. It is with this dinner that we hope to, once again, bring the LGBTQ+ community together and share this very special holiday.

Last year, the Colby Olsen Foundation held our 1st Annual Thanksgiving Dinner with the anticipation of providing a space for displaced individuals within the Tucson community. With the help of many volunteers and local businesses, we successfully fed over 200 people.

This year, with the help of our sponsors & volunteers we wish to expand our offerings and anticipate an attendance of 300+ individuals.

We would like to thank The Historic Y, IBT’s, ABC Pet Clinic, Master Mixx, Doctor Smiles Orthodontics, Reveille Men’s Chorus and State Farm – Chris Cronkite for helping make this event a success.

There will also be a special performance by the Reveille Men’s Chorus!”

  1. About 50 people at this festive event today at the Historic Y. Colby’s Mom Naomi Olsen welcomed us in the courtyard, and introduced a young man named Alex who played guitar later, with a woman singer friend. Our artist friend George Strasburger was helping serve food in the line. This event is free & welcoming for the public till 6 p.m. tonight, to celebrate Colby’s favorite holiday. The foundation had a flyer advocating for LGBTQ+ Seniors and youth. Theme today was “We Are Better Together”.
