Brian Fiorino stepped into millions of living rooms across American last Tuesday as a result of his  appearance on the popular “Wheel of Fortune” television game show.

Fiorino is a Senior Finance Associate with United Way of the Mid-South, and recently celebrated his tenth year with the organization.

Fiorino was prominently featured on Tuesday night’s broadcast with hosts Pat Sajak and Vanna White. The show was taped January 13, 2012 in Culver City, California at the Sony Picture Studios.

Fiorino solved a pair of word and letter puzzles revealing the phrases “classic cartoon characters,” and “self-made millionaire.”

While Fiorino did not make his second puzzle solution into a self-fulfilling prophecy, he had a wonderful experience during the taping. “It was so much fun and so surreal at the same time,” he said.  “Pat (Sajak) and Vanna (White) could not have been nicer.”

A crowd of friends joined Fiorino at Lindenwood Christian Church the night of the broadcast to watch Brian in action on a big screen television and offer their support as he guessed letters and phrases on the local airing on WMC TV 5.

Congratulations to Brian for his lucrative puzzle-solving skills on “Wheel of Fortune!”
