WACO, Texas--()--Greg Klepper, CEO of Backstage Pass Music Center in Waco and Founder of PRUF LED in Robinson, Texas, is back home after appearing on the premiere episode of NBC’s All-Star Celebrity Apprentice with Country Music Artist Trace Adkins.
“The Wolf in Charge of the Hen House.”
Adkins invited Klepper to New York City after the country music artist was selected Project Manager for Episode 1: “The Wolf in Charge of the Hen House.”
Adkins’ mission was to sell more meatballs than the competing Celebrity Apprentice team and raise funds for one of Adkins’ favorite charities - the American Red Cross.
While his competitor’s team sold meatballs to the public at a New York City restaurant, Adkins invited 15 of his friends, including Klepper, to a private event to eat meatballs and donate to his cause.
Klepper says he was happy to help Adkins raise money for such a worthy organization as the American Red Cross. “Trace’s business model proved to be a formula for success and his team’s meatballs were pretty good, too,” says Klepper.
Adkins’s team raised more than $400,000 for the American Red Cross.
The episode, which aired on television Sunday, March 3, is now available online at www.nbc.com.
