I’ve been publicizing this wild sounding jello event for several years at Tucsoncitizen.com, 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: http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/MiaHansen/jell-o-wrestling-2014. 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:
