Jell-O Wrestling is Back!
The 33rd Annual Reno Gannon Jell-O Wrestling Extravaganza is gearing up to be the largest comeback in SAAF’s event history. In an effort to keep our community and especially our clients safe, we had to pause Jell-O Wrestling for a few years. After careful consideration, we decided that it was time for this loved event to come back.
Thirty-five years ago, Reno Gannon created the event ‘Jell-O Wrestling’ to raise funds for The Shanti Foundation. Jell-O Wrestling raised nearly $5,000 in that inaugural year!
Carrying on Reno’s legacy, 2019’s Jell-O Wrestling raised more than $45,000!
Sponsors of Jell-O Wrestling play an integral part in this success. By underwriting the costs associated with putting on Jell-O Wrestling, sponsors make it possible for all funds raised to go directly to support the care services, prevention programs, LGBTQ+ initiatives, and SAAF’s gender-affirming clinic, SAAF Health.
This year, Jell-O Wrestling will take place on Saturday, May 6th at Tucson’s Slaughterhouse. This is a 21+ event and is guaranteed to induce lots of laughs and lots of fun. These last few years, Jell-O Wrestling has been the most-requested event to make a return in our SAAF community. We are excited to continue this tradition and have a blast together.
Thank you so much for considering partnering with SAAF for this beloved and important fundraising event.
