Fans Across America Founder Named All-Stars Among Us Finalist


Three finalists per Major League club were chosen out of thousands of nominations from across the United States and Canada of "everyday All-Stars," people who have gone above and beyond to serve their community.

Fans are invited to vote in the All-Stars Among Us campaign, a presentation of People Magazine and Major League Baseball, for the 30 winners from June 8-24. One winner will be chosen as a representative of every club, and all 30 will be honored at Busch Stadium in St. Louis for the July 14 All-Star Game. One club representative also will be featured in People Magazine.

Here are the finalists for Arizona:

* Bruce V. Petillo of Gilbert, Ariz. At age 4, Petillo's son was diagnosed with epilepsy and, understanding the financial challenges of caring for a seriously ill child, he started the Fans Across America Charitable Foundation to help other families. In a time of need, the foundation helps offset everyday living expenses so parents can focus on their child's health.
