Peter Facinelli Supports Alex's Lemonade Stand with NY Mall Tour Visit

PFach was in Hudson Valley NY yesterday doing a mall tour to support Alex's Lemonade Stand:

In an event sponsored by the Hudson Valley Federal Credit Union, Peter Facinelli, who portrays the vampire Dr. Carlisle Cullen, the head of the Cullen clan, visited the Galleria at Crystal Run in the Town of Wallkill to give autographs and take photos with his adoring fans.

"It's very humbling to have people come here and want to meet me," Facinelli said of his celebrity status. "It amazes me."

But he's now using that status for the benefit of others, using this event and many others like it as a way to promote good causes. Fans purchased autographs for $25 or photographs for $40, and a portion of those proceeds will be donated to Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, an organization that fights childhood cancer.

"It feels really good to be able to use my name to actually spread awareness ...," Facinelli said. "It's been great to able to use it in a positive way."
