Jello Wrestling, everyone?


Last year was my first time at Southern Arizona Aids Foundation’s Jello Wrestling extravaganza at The Slaughterhouse in Tucson.  I naively didn’t even know what “jello shots” were…so here’s your chance to find out if you are like me. Lots of enthusiastic two-person teams of amateur wrestling do take on one another in a large vat of green/blue jello. All proceeds benefit SAAF.

Join us for the 28th Annual Jell-O Wrestling Extravaganza & Benefit Auction on Saturday May 9th at the Slaughterhouse. This is one of SAAF’s funnest events and you will not want to miss this year’s surprise “superstar” wrestlers.

Tickets to the 28th Annual Jell-O Wrestling Extravaganza and Benefit Auction are $20 in advance and $25 the day of.

Tickets will be mailed out by the end of March and any tickets purchased after May 4 will be held on a list at will-call. Thank you for your support!

Hope to see you for another great year of Jell-O Wrestling! Get your tickets online here:
