A member of the Desert Vista wrestling family is hurting and the program is doing what it can to help.

Phil Donofrio Sr. lost his 1 ½ year battle with cancer recently and the family needs assistance with the funeral arrangements.

Donoforio’s son, Phil, is a former Thunder wrestler and current junior varsity assistant coach.

To help them out the team is hosting a car wash at Yoasis, located at Chandler Blvd. and Desert Foothills, on Sunday from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.
