Get ready for fireworks as star of the reality TV show ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ Prue MacSween turns judge for the finale of Canberra Celebrity Charity Apprentice 2013/14.

Ms MacSween was a colourful contestant on the 2013 season of ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ where she went head to head with fellow contestants, culminating in a boardroom showdown with the legendary Mr Bouris.

The Sydney–based social commentator and PR guru has generously agreed to bring her expertise and passion to the finale of this year’s Canberra Celebrity Charity Apprentice on 22nd March.

Ms MacSween and fellow judges Jeff House (CEO ClubsACT) and Nick Samaras (founder of Canberra Weekly Magazine) will assist our own ‘Mr Bouris’ (Greg Robbo Robson) in putting the apprentices through a series of fun challenges throughout the night.  The apprentices will be ‘fired’ one by one until there is only one left standing.

‘I am looking forward to my involvement in yet another Celebrity Apprentice, but this time as a judge. I’m sure this group of contestants will be much more civilised, industrious and congenial and I couldn’t think of a better charity to support’, Ms MacSween said.

The 11 high profile locals vying to be crowned Canberra Celebrity Charity Apprentice have been putting their business and fundraising skills to the test over the last eight months.  The apprentice who raises the most money will be crowned Canberra Celebrity Charity Apprentice 2013/14.

All money raised by the apprentices will go towards funding therapy programs, services and specialized equipment for children and their families living with cerebral palsy in the ACT and surrounding regions.

‘We have been amazed at the innovative fundraising campaigns our celebrity apprentices have come up with’, said Rob White, CEO of Cerebral Palsy Alliance.

‘Regardless of who is ultimately crowned winner, all our Canberra Celebrity Charity Apprentices should be proud of their role in ensuring local children with cerebral palsy receive the ongoing therapy and support necessary for them to interact with their families and friends.

‘Their help has been life-changing, and for that, I’d hire them all!’ he said.

  1. Fiona Keary – Style Liberation and mum of Max who has cerebral palsy
