5th Annual Local Celebrity Apprentice Fundraiser

Mary W_4cJob Point is producing mid-Missouri’s 5th annual Local Celebrity Apprentice Fundraiser, a take off on NBC’s all star show.  Local business-savvy contestants will compete in unique tasks, using their talents, fame and business acumen to win challenges, while ultimately raising money and awareness for Job Point.  Just as in the nationally syndicated “Apprentice”, our local celebrities will be subjected to mental challenges and team dynamics.  All of the tasks will be judged by “The Boss”, Ms. Mary Wilkerson, in the Boardroom at Deja Vu.

Street Challenge – Tuesday, October 28, 11:00am to 1:00pm at 9th and Broadway

(no admission fee required)

Boardroom Finale – Wednesday, November 5, at Deja Vu, 5:30pm, Doors Open 5:00pm
