5/25 - Rick Maynard, Desiree Rossi , Beth Ostrosky Stern, Pam Krueger, Walter Williams ,

Rick Maynard - Director of Communications - KFC
America has spoken and the Colonel listened. The wildly popular KFC Double Down™ is going to remain on the KFC menu past May 23, when the “Limited Time Only” promotion for KFC’s first-ever bunless chicken sandwich was scheduled to end.  While the launch of the unique Double Down created unprecedented buzz for the brand, it also received a warm reception from KFC customers. Later this month, KFC will sell its 10 millionth Double Down. As a result of this continuing demand, Double Down fans will be able to keep enjoying the sandwich for an extended time period at participating KFC locations.  “This truly an example of ‘popular demand,’” said Javier Benito, executive vice president of marketing and food innovation for KFC. “Our plans were to feature the product only through May 23, but millions of Double Down fans have spoken and we won’t disappoint them. You’ll continue to be able to get the Double Down at KFC this summer.”

Desiree Rossi -   American Heart Association's " Be the Beat Program" 
Seventeen-year-old Desiree Rossi was coming home from school when she noticed a man collapsed on the street with a crowd of people around him. No one was doing anything. Desiree, who had been trained in CPR just six months earlier at her high school, recognized the man was in cardiac arrest, and she immediately started CPR. Paramedics arrived and took the man to the hospital where he was stabilized.  According to the American Heart Association, studies have shown that children as young as nine-years-old can learn and retain CPR skills. This year – the 50th anniversary of CPR – the American Heart Association is calling on teens and adults in their effort to educate 1 million Americans in CPR.
