Congrats to Nelly Roach, 2012 Local Celebrity Apprentice - November 1, 2012

Job Point congratulates Columbia’s Local Celebrity Apprentice, Nelly Roach, Executive Director/Owner of Caledon Virtual, LLC.  Kat “The Boss” Cunningham selected Ms. Roach at Job Point’s 3rd annual event held at Deja Vu.  Sixteen local business people competed in four teams to raise awareness and money for Job Point in a street challenge at 9th and Broadway on Tuesday, October 23rd, and in a talent competition on October 25th. The winning GREEN team included Ms. Roach; David Coil of Coil Construction; Lisa Pilkington of Midway USA, sponsored by Pete and Pat McDonald; and Dean Runyan of Columbia Insurance Group. For the Street Challenge, the green team dressed in green costumes, held a raffle, washed windows on passing cars, and provided live music by Jay Pilkington & Friends.  For the Talent Challenge, they brought down the house with their version of Korean rapper, Psy’s, music video, “Donate Job Point Style”.  The four Green team members were each posed a final question by Ms. Cunningham to determine the winner. 

The BLUE Team included: Kim Cayce, DeSpain Cayce Dermatology Center & Medical Spa; Kris Bezenek of Trabue Hansen & Hinshaw, Inc, sponsored by KFRU; Anne Farrow, Smart Business Products; and Paul Love of Carfax, sponsored by Boone Hospital Center.   On behalf of the Blue Team, Barack, Mitt, Auntie Sam and Lady Liberty encouraged all to Vote for Team Job Point at the Street Challenge.  Following the political theme, their talent presented suggestions via video for Barak and Mitt to improve their ratings, which included a lot of Botox. 


The YELLOW Team consisted of: Crystal Midkiff, Inside Columbia Magazine; Rob Stretch, Veterans United Foundation; Nancy Allison, Shelter Insurance Companies; and Alex Perry of Wells Fargo Advisors, sponsored by Tom Elliott, DDS.  They offered passersby on the Street an opportunity to throw a pie in the face of a politician with Barack, Mitt, Hillary and Sarah Palin making guest appearances.  For their talent, they staged a political debate which culminated in a dance-off between Barak and Mitt.


The ORANGE Team was comprised by: Chris Harrison, Columbia Business Times; Jamie Doss, Isle of Capri Casino & Hotel; Frank Higgins, The Insurance Group, Inc; and Vicki Lynch of I.B. Nuts and Then Some, sponsored by Frank and Liz Aten. For the Street Challenge, they sold tasty treats and raffle chances with Marching Mizzou accompaniment.   And for their talent, the orange team wowed the crowd with their rendition of Dance Evolution, featuring B Smoothe.


The four Apprentice teams raised nearly $18,000 through their two challenges with event proceeds totaling a record $30,000.  Please contact Brenda Overkamp at 573-777-1506 for photos.
