June 29, 2012 | 10:38 am

Former Orange Lutheran receiver Austin Pettis, a third-round draft pick of the St. Louis Rams in 2011, is holding a basketball fundraiser on July 21 at 1 p.m. at Orange Lutheran to raise funds for his Austin Pettis Foundation.

Tickets will cost $15, and there will be celebrity NFL and NBA players coming together to raise funds for Pettis' project to assist underprivileged kids in St. Louis and in his hometown to attend sports camps.

Pettis was a standout in college at Boise State after playing for the Lancers.
