Help Trace Adkins Win $100,000 for Red Cross on Celebrity Apprentice, with your ice cream purchase before Sunday.
If you’re a fan of Country and Western singer Trace Adkins, you know he’s one of two finalists to win NBC’s All Star Celebrity Apprentice this Sunday. Arkansans are invited to help Trace earn an extra $100,000 for his charity of choice, the American Red Cross, by purchasing his limited edition ice cream Maple Macadamia Mash Up before this Sunday at Walgreens.
For this week only, purchases of Maple Macadamia Mash Up developed by Trace for Walgreens’ Delish Brand will be tallied as part of Celebrity Apprentice’s final competition. “If Trace’s Mash Up is the top seller, he’ll earn an additional $100,000 for Red Cross disaster relief,” stated American Red Cross in Arkansas Communications Information Officer, Brigette Williams. “That equals 10,000 meals for disaster victims or 20,000 blankets.”
Trace knows of Red Cross care first hand after Disaster Responders arrived after a fire at his Nashville home in 2011 while he was on tour. Like most Arkansans who have experienced a residential fire, Trace had no idea why Red Cross was there when his wife called to inform him of the fire. Since that time, Trace has learned more about Red Cross response to residential fires and other disasters and has joined the Red Cross National Celebrity Cabinet.
With five Red Cross disaster responses daily across the state, primarily home fires, thousands of Arkansans also appreciate the around the clock disaster relief provided by Red Cross and understand the need for such care here as well as across the country.
“Forecasts expect temperatures to be close to ninety degrees every day this week across Arkansas, so what better time to be prepared to stay cool than by stopping by Walgreens to stock up on Trace’s Maple Macadamia Mash Up ice cream,” stated Williams.
“Walgreens is located in forty-five cities across Arkansas with close to one hundred locations so there’s no reason not to take a Maple Macadamia Mash Up break every day this week at home, school or work,” stated Williams. “How often can you take comfort in knowing the ice cream you eat and stock up is truly making a difference for others in need of help?”
