Congratulations to Robert Bell!

Robert Bell

Senior Pride takes particular pride in congratulating Robert Bell, who, on February 16, 2019, will receive the Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation (SAAF) Steve Hall Award at their annual Out Brunch.

Robert has been instrumental in the growth of Senior Pride as an organization, since it was part of Wingspan. He has served as chair and co-chair of events presenting films and authors, worked tirelessly to develop funding and resources and provided leadership in countless ways as a member of the Senior Pride Steering Committee. Robert volunteers in many ways including collating the newsletter, tabling at special events and participating in serving meals to LGBTQ youth: illustrations of his modesty and commitment to team work. Like Steve Hall, Robert is willing to take on whatever job needs to be done. »more
