Arizona Sundogs player Keith Wynn and media representative Ashley Stovall, Jackie Bessler from Yavapai Broadcasting, Clay Griffen, Nicholas Bessler (front wih football), Lew Rees from Fain Signature Group, and Tim's Toyota Center General Manager Gary Spiker, playing the accordion, kept the flames going Dec. 14 at the Burning Desire to Feed the Hungry food drive in the Prescott Valley Safeway parking lot.

Rees said Yavapai Food Bank co-director Bob Wilson told him the drive collected 6,300 pounds of food - twice the amount donated in 2011. Organizers plan another drive in the spring or early summer.

Congratulations on a success food drive. No surprise that this food drive doubled the amount collected last year and the difference is because this year's Burning Desire was spearheaded by Lew Rees, one of the original organizers of the event. Lew knows what it means to have a successful event - hard work.
