Troops Honored on Celebrity Apprentice

The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund received a huge donation and our troops were honored on The Celebrity Apprentice. The Intrepid Heroes Fund is Piers Morgan Charity....he had several soldiers wounded troops attend the final show live in NYC, and others attended the celebrity charity event. The heartfelt reception that these wounded, brave troops received was overwhelming.

Piers became The Celebrity Apprentice, and as such the Donald donated $250K to Intrepid Heroes Fund. Piers won 11 challenges - each time he won, The Intrepid Heroes Fund received a large donation.
