Trace Adkins presented a check for $670,000 to the American Red Cross on Sunday night’s episode of NBC’s “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice.” The sum was Adkins’ to donate after his team won the first task on the season premiere (3/3).

“We could not ask for a better representative of the Red Cross,” Red Cross President and CEO Gail J. McGovern said. “Trace brings humor, honesty, hard work and grit to everything he does. On behalf of the countless people who will benefit because of your participation in the ‘Apprentice,’ thank you, Trace, from the bottom of my heart for getting the job done once again.”

On the first episode, Adkins led his team to victory with the help of multiple generous donors including Red Cross Celebrity Cabinet members Amy Grant and Nikki Taylor, philanthropist T. Boone Pickens, Domino Sugar, as well as members of the Nashville community including the Grand Ole Opry, Creative Artists Agency, Diamond Coach, Blaster Records, Diamond Gusset Jeans, the firm of Flood, Bumstead, McCready & McCarthy (FBMM), Kyote Tractor, Music City Merchandise, Nashville Hospitality Industry, Pruf LED Show, Dog-Universal Music and Vector Management.

Adkins is a recent addition to the Red Cross Celebrity Cabinet and his family was the recipient of Red Cross services when his home was claimed by fire in 2011. Adkins was the Red Cross spokesperson for its 2012 Holiday Giving Campaign and supported its Holiday Mail for Heroes program that benefits active military members, veterans and their families.

Trace will be competing against other celebrities this season to have the honor of delivering a $250,000 bonus check to their designated charity.

“We will be watching and rooting for Trace as a true ‘Red Crosser,’” McGovern said.”No matter what happens next, we are so very proud of Trace and his association with the Red Cross.”
