SAAF - Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation - is a provider of HIV/AIDS prevention information to the public and client services to patients. It is a highly effective organization that Tucson is blessed to have. The second HIV/AIDS organization - TIHAN - is faith-based and the two work hand in glove. Most of our clients and volunteers in one organization inevitably are part of the other, too. SAAF puts on two annual fundraisers: Jello Wrestling and Moda Provacateur, that are usually sold out as soon as the tickets go on sale. Jello Wrestling is a combination drag show and jellow wrestling match. It's hilarious, and everyone loves the show. Moda is a fashion show that is full of great music and talented volunteer performers and stage crews. We also stage the local AIDSWalk. SAAF volunteers give out prevention information anywhere we're welcome. Our clients depend on us for housing, moral support, counseling, life giving meals, and a host of other vital functions.
