Carolyn’s note: I’ve been to this wild extravaganza in the past, with the Divas soliciting for team donations in buckets, in anticipation of the various (and costumed) wrestling matches. We all swallowed a bunch of Jello shots, while watching & cheering these teams of one or two wrestlers (sometimes famous people) take on one another in the cold, bluish/greenish? jello pit. It’s a unique fun activity for a Spring Day in the Old Pueblo. Check it out on 4th Avenue on Saturday April 21. Proceeds go to SAAF – Southern Arizona Aids Foundation
