Joan Rivers Wins Celebrity Apprentice and $500,000 for Gods Love We Deliver!


“You’re Hired”!

With these two wonderful words from Donald Trump, the audience at the finale of “The Celebrity Apprentice” burst into applause (and some tears) for Joan Rivers, this year’s “Celebrity Apprentice.”

No one could be happier for Joan than  God’s Love We Deliver, which will receive the winner’s check in the amount of $250,000! All totaled, Joan won over $500,000 for God’s Love We Deliver. These funds will help God’s Love continue to meet the overwhelming demand for our services, and  provide even more nutritious meals to people who are sick and hungry.


Through the course of many grueling weeks of competition, Joan beat out 14 other celebrity contestants, including Clint Black, Herschel Walker, Andrew Dice Clay, Jesse James, Khloe Kardashian, Brande Roderick, and Dennis Rodman, among others, and in the finals, Annie Duke.

Joan Rivers, a God’s Love We Deliver Board Member for over 15 years, has played an enormously important role in helping to guide the agency’s growth and expansion of its life-sustaining mission during her time here. She is an amazing friend to the agency and especially to our less fortunate friends and neighbors.

The funds Joan won on “Celebrity Apprentice” will provide over 56,000 meals and unlimited nutrition counseling for the clients of God’s Love We Deliver. Said Joan, “It was a grueling competition, but anything I can do to strengthen God’s Love We Deliver and help them provide more nutritious meals is well worth it.”


God’s Love We Deliver is the New York City metropolitan area’s leading not-for-profit organization dedicated to preparing and delivering over 3,300 nutritious, life-sustaining meals each weekday to men, women and children living with HIV/AIDS, cancer, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease and other life altering illnesses.
