Jell-O Wrestling Extravaganza

I’ve been publicizing this wild sounding jello event for several years at, but never dared to attend.  However, this is the year to go –especially because I know two Tucson friends who will be wrestling at this extravaganza, raising funds for Southern Az Aids Foundation.  See information below for these mystery (or mysterious) friends.


The two mystery friends facing off in the ring are none other than shorter-than-me Mia Hansen, former E.D. of Tucson Meet Yourself and now with FEATsAZ, and the tall guy of 4th Avenue, Kurt Tallis, FAMA’s  marketing director. Is this Davida vs. Goliath or what? Can’t wait to watch this match of the year (century?) in the cold, gooey, wet, jello wrestling ring between Mighty Mia and Kaptain “Krunch” Kurt. If you want to donate, go to their fund raising page: Goal is $3000, and to date she’s raised $2,065, almost there.

And here’s a photo courtesy of Mia, of the two contestants fully clothed  in aloha wear:

Don’t forget to get your tickets for this Jell-o Extravaganza, $20 advance, $25 at the door.

  1. It was a wild, wet night of jello wrestling with 9 teams (of 2 each), lots of singing DIVAS, jello shots, and a live auction of art, food, trips. Some lucky raffle winner won 2 tickets to see Britney Spears in Las Vegas at Planet Hollywood. Did Mia beat Kurt? Stay tuned for a post later today, hopefully with a graphic photo gallery.

  2. Mia’s fundraising goal almost reached at $2290, so please consider a donation to SAAF or attend this wrestling match today.

  3. Mighty Mia saying thanks Carolyn for your support…and I am going to bury Kaptain Krunch Kurt in Jell-O tomorrow! It’s all in gooey good fun to support SAAF. Thanks to all who have already contributed – there’s still time! The more you give, the more Jell-O punishment I will give Kaptain Kurt.

      Mia, is the jello edible? Someone asked me last night. See you today and my bet’s on you to win the match of the century. Ha ha.
