Jell-O Wrestling Extravaganza 2023
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! 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, June 24th at Tucson’s Slaughterhouse. This is a 21+ event and 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!
Support our wrestlers by donating on their team page. The team that raises the most, will be crowned the winners of 2023’s Jell-O Wrestling Extravaganza! Click on the team images to donate directly to their page.
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. If you are interested in sponsoring this beloved event, fill out the Sponsorship Packet.
